Erskineville Studio in Sydney by Pivot Studio

 
November 25th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Pivot Studio

The project is for a secondary dwelling which will be used as an art studio and home office. The project is characterized by its high level external aesthetic detailing. A black glazed brick is chosen as the base building material with a cedar wall paneling system used as a secondary decorative cladding. The timber paneling is both decorative and functional with it being used as rotating timber shutters over the northern level 1 window which reveal splashes of colour and tone in a rotated position. The paneling arrangement acts as a ribbon, wrapping and shrouding the building whilst providing notions of flow and direction through its fluid and curvilinear arrangement and articulation.

The house emerges with two overlapping structures topped by a triangular element (the stairs leading to the terrace).

The lower structure, more transparent and more “fragile”, supports the higher structure, dimmer and containing more rhythmic openings, where small volumes – the balconies – punctuate to the South.

Article source: Studio Stag

Kaleydo Hotel is a hospitality project located in Gili Trawangan island of Lombok, Indonesia. The client asked for a contemporary concept which considers the vernacular character of the area. Without being in so much resemblance of the aesthetics and style of Indonesian architecture, StudiSTAG started analyzing the vernacular in a function and usefulness guidance. A more contemporary approach reached by evaluating the ratios of the vernacular, rationalizing the Indonesian style and using the local techniques and materials.
