SJM POOLS

AND-RÉ as Architects

One organism, one body, that understands and reflects the functional complexity of nature, interpreting it in its relationship with the resources and translate this to architecture, in the use of light, the sun or the water and consecutively in the way the architecture itself generate these resources. Therefore the built morphology is understood as habitat resonance. The nature based principles provide conceptual strength, in the way that understanding natural systems can positively influence human creations. The skin interpretation, and the implied metaphor, is more than a plastic/aesthetic pretext, but a way of interpreting existing organic elements, discover their potential, and transpose them to a new adapted system with a renewed purpose. The facade is designed by a single module multiplication. This module works like a morphic/adaptive system. The adapted dimensions of its inner form allow visual dynamic and maximizes adaptability to environment conditions and technical needs.
