Out in the Indian Ocean, protecting the Indonesian coastline from Tsunamis sits the design for an electric artificial reef station. The framework of moveable steel girders and steel reef ball structures is designed in a way to support the growth of natural coral. The design’s section shows the moveable meta balls which are connected to an electrical cable that is attached to floating solar panels on the water surface.

RCKa played a key role in the genesis of the project, having identified the full extent of local authority site ownership and the opportunity to replace a structurally unsound facility with one wholly aligned with emerging youth provision policy.
The practice also identified the capital funding stream (having worked on the part-funded OPEN youth venue in Norwich), and were instrumental in the preparation of a funding bid to the government’s MyPlace scheme, which was subsequently selected from over 240 competing bids.

The proposed house is situated in the outer suburbs of Nicosia surrounded by the endless tranquility of the majestic agricultural terrains.
Inspired by the existing topography of the area, form and landscape interweave into one hybrid structure, allowing for multi-layered programme, views and landscape to co-exist harmoniously.

DOS architects were invited to take part in the competition setup by the site’s promoter, GWA (Grow Wealth Assets)in March this year alongside 4 other European Architecture firms, all of which were asked to produce a “Unique and Iconic building” for the site. Their ambitious proposal, which could be described as a “Cantilevering courtyard tower”, is located in the Lize Financial Business District, in the North East of China’s capital city and will be the first project for DOS architects in China.

The client wanted a consultancy space at home. The farmhouse itself is a typical courtyard farm. In order to protect privacy, and also to avoid creating a door in the rather blank outer walls, we opted for a brick gate, behind which a contemporary framework was constructed internally.

The client had just purchased the site, a small but stunningly located oceanfront property with panoramic views of the Pacific, when they were introduced to me. As I had just gone out on my own after many years as Associate Director at a successful mid-size firm I didn’t have much to show that I could prove as “my own”. After a detailed selection process the client chose to engage me for the design of their new house, probably based on a lot of trust in my ability and the fact that we got on very well on a personal level.

The project is part of a transformation plan for Spikerverket (a former nail factory) by MAD arkitekter – developed by Avantor.

The house is sited on a tree lined suburban road in Cheshire and was designed for a young family couple. On the road, the house types are suburban; conservative, bland and mock traditional. Our approach was to create a fresh contemporary version of the suburban house type; one that reacts to its context and is tailored to suit the specific needs of the client.

The site is located on the new urban area in Alicante known as the Golf Club because all the singular houses have their backyard facing the Golf Course. The site area is 1.000sqm and its triangular shape confers a very specific design.
