The River Oasis

D&P Associates as Architects, Landscape, Engineering, Consultants, Collaborators

At first glance, you'll be impressed with the peculiar spatial arrangement. The River Oasis has multiple full-width sliding glass doors and balconies facing different directions that gives the house a breathtaking panoramic view. This design decision is made based on the fact that the house has no adjacent buildings and as a result our client can enjoy the surrounding natural landscape in addition to the direct view of the Red River on the top floor.

 

When a building is surrounded by nature, greenery, and sights, you'd want the building to be in harmony with its surrounding. Therefore, we opted for a facade finishing with its colors and textures inspired by earth walls.

 

Next,  we give the canopy an interesting characteristic by creating a rectangle shape with a see-through wood grain-like texture. The sophisticated cut out pattern lets a certain amount of sunlight come through and glitter on the ground surface, creating a remarkable sight. This lighting experience changes according to the sun position and the time of the day..

 

Last but not least, the wooden doors in particular the one in the mezzanine, are engraved with beautiful artwork, each of its own. Beyond its decorative purpose, the doors serve as a brief introduction with small openings where you can catch a glimpse of the space beyond. In addition, little adornments on the door showcase the residents, their hobbies and personalities.

 

To sum up, we consider a house as not only a place where you live but also a representation of who you are. In our design, we try to add depth to every, even the smallest design element. Thus as a whole, one's living experience will be significantly enriched and elevated.
