This project was made as an addition for the house of a Nutritionist. She has already more than 8.98m2 space that will be expanded to 23m2. With an architectural program consisting of Consulting Room, Sitting Room and Bathroom the project tries to take advantage of every last square centimeter the area has.
Being attached to the north side of a house, there is a lack of direct light in the office so the design is intended to seize and take any opportunity of all the natural light to insert it to each area.The core element of the project is the design of a bookseller that alludes to the artistic tastes of the client.
Another detail that is provided in the project was the office logo design, an abstraction of an apple tree, a tree that sprouts a symbol of a food included on any complete diet, the apple. This in idea becomes more obvious on the wall of the consulting room. The image consists of the 3 varieties of the fruit color to provide life into the project.
The project uses lightweight construction systems with highly recycled content and highly recyclable so the design is intended to be environmental friendly and also tries to keep low energy consumption, trying to create an office with passive systems and integrated design with the present house.
