It all started with the owner’s dream to create a “place” for lively and colorful activities on an old family land.  The development should reflect memorable unique style. Also, the development should be able to handle broad variety of activities. With no other preconceived ideas about the appearance, the owner came to OPENBOX with the first concept keyword, “Ngan Wat” (Temple festival). Then, we began by studying the site and develop “Ngan Wat” into tangible images and forms.

Prado Bis in Paris, France by Florence GAUDIN, architect DPLG

This transformation from basement to recording studio lie between high technicity and aesthetic research in a noble way. Located below a residential building, the first purpose was obviously the acoustic performance ( in terms of isolation and quality of acoustic demand). Besides the technical result, it was essential to invent an engaging visual atmosphere for these places of creation. Here, the decoration is not accessory, it characterize the space. The global morphology of the caissons being largely compelled, it had to find a way from a quasi-military geometry and provide some playful dimension. The “patchwork” proposal, a combination of “stains” expanding all over the walls the floor and the ceiling, weaken the links with the space, and like an anamorphosis, energize the place.The random geometry segmentation was also perfect for the treatment of the acoustic demand. The selection of materials and colors is inspired by Ethiopian music.

openbox intertwines architecture and landscape with marble house in thailand

OPENBOX Architects’ recent residential design intertwines architecture, interior and landscape in the form of marble sculpture.The initial idea is to allow habitants behavior to carve a dwelling space into a monolithic piece of marble sculpture. The main piece appears so solid, yet so light it floats to defy the gravity, while external landscape space flows underneath through the center courtyard. Residual marble pieces fell onto the ground to become part of the landscape features, isolated, yet visually related so boldly, as they use to be part of the marble boulder.

The Wooden house in Kanji Dol, Slovenia by studio Pikaplus

Awarded 1st place nationally in 2016 for the best wooden construction in Slovenia. The Wooden House is a residential building embodying the elusive architectural quality of blurring the line between external and internal spaces. The Wooden House was designed with the intent to provide a resilient shelter from adverse weather, whilst creating the internal environment replicating the sensation of being outdoors. Soft wooden interiors are shielded by a durable outer shell. Special consideration was given to the positioning of the house: situated in a natural environment at the verge of a large forest clearing, without disturbing the exceptional beauty of the landscape. With little room to maneuver, given the compact nature of the building plot, the focus was to utilize available space to serve the occupants’ wellbeing. The project used wood as the dominant material in order for the house to blend with the wooded background. Simplicity in the design of The Wooden House is complemented by the oblique lateral facade, adding captivating nuances. All rooms with the exception of the bathroom face the sizable glass facade, letting in vivid colors and shapes of the natural surroundings. The living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom with sauna are on the ground floor while two bedrooms are upstairs, overlooking the rooms in the ground floor. The landscaping design around the house respects the natural environment.

Second Home Offices in Lisbon, Portugal by Selgascano Arquitectos

 
April 18th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Selgascano Arquitectos 

This is the first project built for Secondhome outside London. It is located in an “L” shape wing of the Lisboa Mercado da Ribeira, a popular landmark built in 1882. The only real idea behind this project is to preserve the character and main features of this space while adapting it to a workspace. The building character is defined by a large open space flaked by column shaped iron windows and beautiful iron-cast trusses in the roof. We preserved all of them and kept the inherited idea of one single open space, making small companies to share a huge table (70×10 meters) divided in three, encouraging the relationship and communication between them. The curved cuts in the table give members their own private area to focus on their work while keeping a sense of community.

Located on a lot with a narrow frontage, this building houses a gallery on the first floor and a residence on the second and third floors. The client requested that the gallery have a glass facade to allow good visibility from the street and be a single open space to ensure flexibility and allow for future changes in use.
