House P in Allgäu

On the edge of a densely built residential area in the Allgäu hills, we created a well-conceived wooden house for a variety of uses. The adjacent popular recreation and landscape conservation area prompted us to incorporate the surrounding nature into the design of the house. The new building follows the proportions of the desolate existing building from the 1960s. The staggered storey set back from the street communicates with the slope, whose original steepness we have restored. The restrained, horizontally structured architecture with a façade made of local wood blends harmoniously into the natural surroundings. Floor-to-ceiling glazing, visual axes and open living spaces that offer numerous views stage nature and bring it in... More

Villa B

We are guided by the idea that simple approaches lead to the most elegant solutions, so our architecture is reduced and clean, with an emphasis on the program itself, i.e. contents and their connections. In the case of Villa B, it was necessary to point out the unusual landscape of the rocky hill overgrown with forest as the highest quality locations, so the object is formed on the edge of a hill and predominantly forest-oriented. This makes that piece of nature extra sheltered from outside views, and thus the interior of the house.   In such a complex environment, our desire was to create contrast with architecture. Pure cubic form as opposed to complex found, with the absence of any need for mimicry. Such a juxtaposition showed as... More

CO2morrow is a reactive sculpture, first shown at the Royal Academy of Arts in London as a part of the show, “Earth: Art of a Changing World” in 2009. Inspired by Timothy Morton’s idea of the hyperobject, CO2morrow approaches climate change as an issue of consciousness. The sculpture is created almost entirely out of carbon fiber and is modeled after a scrubber molecule that takes CO2 out of the air, based on research by chemist Omar Yaghi. The sculpture is also covered in LED lights that react in real time to data received from a network of sensing technologies in the United Kingdom. During the project, the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, who were helping Lutyens and his team collect data, were hac... More

Merging Nature with the Living Habitat   The Madikeri Resort in Coorg, Karnataka is a hospitality project that was designed for Club Mahindra Holidays and Resorts.

SERA Bistro-Bar

NATURE IS OUR CONTEXT   The keywords of this project are: #cozy #family #friends #nature #conversations #great music #books #fresh food. Those keywords used from the family that owns this bistro-bar when describing on how they see their place to become, made the idea easy to put on paper. ‘Sera’ bistro bar is designed to arouse feelings.

Hotel Impozant

Hotels are places where you want to have privacy and at the same time be surrounded by all possible services. Hotel Impozant in Slovakia is a beautiful example of this. It has been closed and extensively renovated over the last two years. Stone, glass, metal and wood. These materials will accompany you throughout the space. The large open spaces of the bar or conference halls with open views of the surrounding countryside alternate with dark corridors and diverse nooks for your privacy. Representative reception and common areas offer the opportunity to meet or just relax. The variability of spaces for different events is solved by mobile walls, which divide the rooms according to current needs. However, the wellness part of the hotel is a... More
