Origami apartment

Located in a newly developed housing area Paupys, Vilnius, Lithuania. This area has an interesting feeling - you are in the old town, but surrounded by nature and tranquility. 40 sq.m. apartment folded from black and white shapes to become a contemporary origami interior with fascinating first impression. The view to old-town of Vilnius contrasting with the contemporary concept of the interior. Old and new — viewing and feeling.

Modish Hue

Modish hue is an interesting amalgamation of functional and aspirational requirements of the client and the ideology of the design team to play with neutral and vibrant color palettes, within a modest budget. The apartment is located in a bustling neighborhood of food street, V.V Puram, Bangalore. The inside out façade and the strategically placed openings, allow the sunlight to veil the house for most part of the day and this feature has allowed the design team to experiment with darker and bold color hues, though maintaining the unity and harmony with neutral hues, leaving a mesmerizing taste of aesthetics.  The intrinsically carved curves on the main door delightfully welcome the guest. The pencil ribbed storage unit in the... More

Residence 104

Residence 104 is located on a wedge-shaped site that opens to sweeping views of a canyon, Lake Austin, and the Hill Country beyond. The architects faced a challenge common among projects located on sharply sloping lots with commanding views: capturing views from the house while maximizing the amount of outdoor space on the site. The design responds to this challenge in two ways. First, the house is laid out as an arc along the sharp fall of the terrain, high enough that the fill in front of the house creates a substantial level area.  Accordingly—and in a reversal of the typical American suburban house—the front yard accommodates many family activities such as playing, gathering, entertaining, and cooking. Second, the pro... More

Yoga Pod 2

The project consists of a new yoga studio located in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, that was developed in two distinctive phases.   The first consisted of developing a concept without a site yet chosen. As requested by the clients, the only guidelines were an estimated floor area and the fact that it had to be on a rooftop. The concept design was then formulated with these requests in mind and with a capacity to be easily adapted once the site was chosen. As such, the proposal resulted on a rectangular shape canopy "floating" on a generic rooftop of 30mx10m, with one the corners gently lifted, as if it was revealing the timber interior to this heavily concrete city.   Coincidently, with the global pandemic happening and daily...
