The Golf’s Tower provides “Panorama Apartments” which embraces the view over the Lima Golf Club. The graded rooms and the multiple ways to open and enclose them allow the users to individual configure the inside-out relations.

The apartment unfolds towards the context through the plan that turns from an enclosed sequence of spaces at the south side to an open plan towards the north side. The main rooms like the living room, dinning room and master bedroom are situated at the façade, while the TV-room, study, kitchen and master bathroom are connected to these main rooms. Living, TV room, dinning, kitchen and master bedroom can be combined to one continuous space along the facade to maximize the experience of the “Panorama Apartment”.

In Reykjavik, Iceland capital they wanted to build a big new hotel in Ingolfstorg, a public existing plaza in Kvosin, the city historical  center, very close to the Iceland Parliament.  The program was asking for a way too big building that couldn´t work well with the existing city pattern. There are no big buildings  on this area.  OOIIO Architecture team decided to break the big hotel into 2 hotels. This decision make all the program to work much better,  not only because the size of the buildings is more suitable with the historical center, also because the client could build now the  buildings in different phases, and if he wants, use building A as a 5 stars hotel and building B as a 4 stars hotel, so the scheme is  more  flexible for its economical benefits.
