DESIGN BRIEF A

guesthouse

with

movable

bedroom units to accommodate up to 20 guests and a permanent home for the hosts and their family.


The proposed design aims to capture the

5

“directionless” notion of circular form, as well

3

as the mystic vibe of Icelandic mythology,

6

hence giving the adventuresome visitors

2 1

a very local Northen Icelandic Aurora 7

Borealis experience. Planning for the whole site intends to direct visitors through a series of concentric

GROUND LEVEL

curves, with the Guest Hub being the very core. Building forms are inspired from the

11

Vegvisir symbol and a careful study of sun path accross the site.

CONCEPT


From the main road access, parking is located in convenient distance to the Guest Hub, where the visitors check in their luggage, dine, and enjoy several amenities including sauna, swimming pool, art gallery and a subterranean chapel. The green roof are designed to emerge from the earth, creating a natural pathway for strolling and sightseeing.


N O R T H E R N L I G H T R O O M S | 06

The Guest Hub takes up the form that allow panoramic view to the whole site, with most windows facing south to maximize access to daylight during winter time. Shaped like an undulated ring that emerges from the earth, the curve exterior mass is juxtaposed with a humble, rustic interior look and feel.


The bedroom units are built upon pier foundation to limit footprint on the site. All bedrooms are located behind 200m from the coast of the lake. Within each unit, the visitors can manually spin the wheel to rotate the whole unit to face a desired sight. The roof is slanted to capture rainwater to reuse in ushing toilet. Each unit consists one king bed, toilet and shower.

DESIGN BRIEF Livewell Collaborative moves their office to the new building and asks for a complete redesign of their space to better accommodate their creative process and attract more co-op students. .

CONCEPT Inspired by Livewell’s structural design process, as well as their need for constant changeability, the concept is “morphed grid”. By introducting a “frame” element and an airy, translucent experience through spaces, the office wants to embody both practicality and a creative spirit that support and inspire every occupiers.

Since the core value of Livewell is collaboration, the open collab was designed to be in the central area, and visually connected to the majority of public spaces to allow for full house events.

CONCEPT Diagrams were generated from fast shutter speed photographs of body movement. Based on the “datum” and “overlapping” notion that reappears throughout the diagrams, the folly takes on the form that highlights both symmetry and mutation. The essence of this structure is the exposed skeleton that expresses the form and creates two paradoxical spatial experiences.


E L E VAT I O N S

THE SKELETON

+

THE SKIN

Bringing the schematic form to full-scale construction required the design of an additional supportive base framework that secures the skeletons together and provides structural strength to bear human’s weight at all levels.

“Cinema is the most beautiful fraud in the world.� Or so Jean-luc Godard said. Film possesses the ability to make believe the most incredible scenarios. The juxtaposition between dream and reality is a distinct characteristic of film, and also the genesis for the Film Institute design. Inspired by the curvature of film strips, and the story-telling structure, an organic form that came from the ground, piercing through the existing building, knotting and unknotting itself was given birth.
