One Main is an office refurbishment that relentlessly deploys numeric command machining of sustainable plywood to evidence the versatility and efficiency available via CAD-CAM design-build processes. The project displaces the combinatorial logic of ready-made components typical of late-industrial process for a seamless and non-standard protocol of customized fabrication. A formal aesthetic emerges from these processes, imbuing the design with a curvilinear continuity at a detail and spatial level.
The whole device consists of 30 main bone models and 3 groups of large-radian curves. Through multiple layers of woven and criss-cross transparent films, an interface of dynamic tension was folded up, with the whole space filled with flowing dynamic. Between blends and conflicts, there would come into being various function spaces, such as entrance, wall, ceiling, window, desktop or seat area. Multi-layer open combinations are the new representation and interpretation of internal and external open sites that interact both inside and outside.
The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) Advanced Architecture Laboratory (AAL) was commissioned to design this large-scale building envelope for The Future of Us exhibition in late 2014. The visitors of the exhibition experience a stunning play of light and shade cast by an intricate metal lattice, like a ‘walk in an imaginary forest’. It is the capstone event to round up Singapore’s Golden Jubilee (SG50) year of celebrations.
The resort off the coast in Northern Norway is situated in an impressive natural scenery, which inspired the conceptual design of the cabins to provide a welcome shelter from the harsh climate, while the cantilevered glass structure gives a feeling of floating on the sea. A naked, but respectful, exposure to the natural elements on the outside. With time and weathering the wood will turn silver grey, like the natural colors of the landscape around. The cabins where carefully placed to provide individual privacy while leaving the existing landscape untouched.
This modular freestanding system can be completely customized.Different sized metal frames and wooden hinges create an innumerable amount of configurations. Several accessories such as mirrors, hooks, hangers, trays , shelves and leather or fabric pockets , can be used to further customize the product . The frames can be moved by the hinges to adapt to any space and can also be folded flat for storage or easy transport. At any time more frames and hinges can be added to the structure. All of these elements create clothes rails , hallway or bathroom units , office panels ,dividing screens ,et
The scenery surrounding Selva of Val Gardena, Italy creates some of the most picturesque landscapes in the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites, projecting imagery that is mostly seen in oil canvas paintings. The project encompasses modern and traditional alpine architecture, marrying each type into one cohesive form. The strong use of local materials grounds the house onto the site merging it with the landscape. Each material has its own unique texture to match the earthy colors and natural surroundings. The house was constructed according to high energy efficiency standards.
