Emptiness is essential, so are the everyday activities.
All functions are part of the building, and can be packed away when not in use.
We need to take out the “tunnel” and enhance the “fabulous view” through design – how?
This is what we had to work with….
The Sydney Harbour Bridge was broken up in sections.
The client resides overseas in one of the most densely populated city in the world.
When the client comes to Sydney, we wanted to welcome her every time with the most Sydney-est icon, and most importantly, an “emptiness”.
A place which is clutter-free, a pure space to reset one’s self.
Isn’t that the ultimate luxury?
As part of the Asia Pacific Architecture Forum, we have participated in the Over the Boundary Exhibition at SLQ Gallery, State Library of Queensland.
Some behind the scene photos of DOSHISYA KYOTANABE CHAPEL are on exhibition…
Catch it before Monday MAR 14!
There was a sense of intense closeness to the Sydney iconic Harbour Bridge…
BUT! you can only feel that on the balcony.
How can we work with this?
First presentation for W HOUSE went well.
Physical models are such great design and communication tools. Sense of space is a lot more real comparing to computer modelling and rendered images. We were able to explain our design intentions easily with clients who are not from spatial design background.
It is important to us that there is no misunderstanding along the way, so we build up the design together with the clients, much like a partnership.
