⁣Chi Chi Studio is a multifunctional space to connect with yourself and your surroundings. With constraints of the structural limit set by the use of natural materials, it became an opportunity to carve out intricate spaces within those limits. An interesting act of constraints turning into opportunities. 

 

The studio building expresses itself in its natural and authentic way through the physical properties of the materials. The lower floor houses an open juice bar with an indoor lounge that overlooks the ocean alongside the lush surrounding. ⠀

And the copper element in the bar changes color naturally over time, from shiny browns to darker browns, then blues and greens when exposed to natural elements. The house is situated 150 meters from the white sand beaches tucked away behind lush greenery. It sits idly, few meters up from the ground, keeping it safe from natural and unwanted elements.


One can contemplate, admiring the seamless fluidity between interior and exterior.
