From the architect. The idea was to have two stories of a different kind of building.

The concept was born out of the wrist movement when scribbling on paper. The area allowed for building was very long and narrow due to multiple restrictions. We began piling the rooms in one row at one end until we met the border; then we turned the room itself backwards and that is how the building obtained its current form.

The turning room does not seem to have an end. The intersections between the floors and ceilings are unexpected. In some places the spaces are very simple, and in other places pretty messed up.

The building is covered in aluminium on the exterior, the interior has been designed with plywood and other board materials. The result is a tangled up building or safety pin, that can spread itself out any moment.

it's like a simplified klein bottle...investigation of feedback loops and what not.

Great project but they should have played around more with
minimal surfaces

looks very good, I like it.

gaijin · October 16, 2009

a weak project. Absolutely nothing new. I can't understand, why in such lovely place, in pine forest, to built aluminum hopper? Why?
The plans are good, but.. nothig new. One question-why you (architects) did a deep and dark patio in the first floor? Where're no space outside? where're no views? where no meadow outside window?

Bo · October 16, 2009

really not bad!

like:
- idea;
- plans (smooth and wavy);
- stairs to bedroom;
dont like:
- fasad details(!);
- enter door;

E-J · October 16, 2009

love it, but those sketches are way below average! seems like most architects can only draw with a computer these days..

harry · October 16, 2009 04:30 PM

It seems to be, but that's not true in my case

TheSoka · October 16, 2009
