Our clients were trusting enough to give me the aesthetic freedom to explore different design decisions. The brief was minimal at first and then during the process it evolved through trial and error.
The basic design principle behind this conceptual approach is the slicing of a volume and the unstrained internal and external appearance. Boundary defining and sculptural like elements contributes to this weightless and unstrained impression. In a strict boundary of a sixteen by sixteen square grid, the void and the solid define three levels of inhabitance. A rotated ‘L’ shaped concrete block inherits an almost lightless attribute, contradicting the basic principles of concrete.
