What was once two separate courtrooms with adjacent support offices and an intermediate floor separating the two, is now a grand two-story Commissioners Courtroom, restored to its original 1896 creation. In addition to the courtroom restoration, a new stairwell spanning five floors within the courthouse was designed to bring the building up to code. One of the challenging requirements to this courtroom is that it had to serve multiple uses in order to make the room more accommodating throughout the year.

EGG project was an order from a client full of restlessness – OJ.
OJ acquired a sculpture, called ‘Seed’, of the contemporary Portuguese artist Rui Chafes. The piece built in iron finds its purpose in the universality of OJ’s mind that seeks values such as origin, purity and universal mystery.
In a second stage, OJ threw us the challenge to design and build a space to receive and expose the ‘Seed’, promoting a deep reflection between Art and Architecture. The designed space is in the basement of his home in Fideris, located in the Swiss Alps.

This is a full renovation project for a room in a 1978-built apartment. From the window, a beautiful view of one of the Fukuoka sights, Ohori Park, can be seen. Water surfaces in the park reflect sunshine and change their expression throughout the day. The first design policy was a utilization of this scenic view.

OVO[i] project was a challenge of a deeply restless client, which proposed the construction of a space to install one sculpture from Rui Chafes – Semente[ii]. This room is in the basement of his home in Fideris, located in the Swiss Alps.
This ‘Trojan Egg’ is the first stage of the project OVO. The purpose of this wooden Egg is to create a void, to unveil a new dimension and through it potentiate mystery. Mystery is a condition that is very close to disappear from our civilization. This value is for us one of the main reasons of life, and therefore the Egg is the dimension we choose to express it.

This project started some time ago. Close relatives brought up the idea of constructing a wc/changing room in the garden. A place to change in and out of a bathing suit since the pond is used as a pool, thus avoiding having to go to the house in order to get changed. A place also to wash one’s hands after the “calçotades” that have already been established as a winter tradition. Pen, paper and inspection of the area to decide where would we place it.

iMovie is one of the various iRooms formats, a room with a film projector on the wall that you can manage directly from the included iPad, the soft curves of the bed structure, of the closet, and of the big Jacuzzi with view, suggested us the use of spherical lamps to emphasize the sinuosity of the shapes and of the context. The Luna pendant lamps by In-es.artdesign, perfectly adapted to our needs both for their shape and for the material used which resembles the surface of the moon. Inside the lamps we inserted RGB LED lamps that can be regulated in intensity and in color directly through iPad.

What was once a disjointed set of rooms were all combined into one large great room, complete with a new kitchen. The open, modern design space admits light and openness to nature and allows this family with small children to live together in comfort.
