Conceptual space focused on a deep analysis of offices, for improving the quality of working spaces.
The research for the project focused on the annoying sounds that office workers handle every day. The concept is the result of studies about the sound and its ways of representation: soft as curves (frequency curves) and sharp like scales (equalizer). The design is a relaxing space of 14,4 sqm, where gentle curves contrast with sharp edges, built as a single piece but composed by thousands of elements.

_ #THE HOME INSIDE A FRAME _ Aalto University, Wood Program (competition) _ Individual work _ 2015
Transportable frames built from timber, to temporarily inhabit vacant buildings.
Project studied for the competition From Border to Home focusing on the shortage of temporary housing for asylum seekers. The project focuses on vacant office buildings where repurposing can be an ecologically sustainable alternative to demolition and rebuilding. The design is a system of furnished modules built in timber, ready to be plugged in existing vacant interior spaces. The frames can be arranged in different compositions according to the need.

Aalto University, Wood Program _ Group work _ 2016 _
Transportable living units built from timber, for temporary housing in a urban context.
The theme for the project derives from the contemporary social challenges in Finland, focusing on the shortage of temporary housing for asylum seekers, as well as for students and families whose homes undergo renovation. The design is a system of housing modules built primarily from timber, for urban application. The units can be stacked and create different configurations according to the need. The Wood Program studio constructed three of these modules at full scale to form a tower that demonstrated the system of the project. The initial concept has been developed by Käbi Noodapera Ramel and selected by the professors Pekka Heikkinen and Philip Tidwel.

Competition _ Mariana Rantanen - Ivan Segato _ 2017 _
Sacred architecture located in Casamance region in Senegal. Investigation of the essence of spiritual spaces.
In response to the site, the building assumes a circular plan and does not impose a front or a back, facing the surroundings and adopting similar features from different perspectives. Series of intermediate spaces connect different scenarios and create opportunities for interaction or isolation. The promenade plays on the passage between the human and the divine sphere with a transition mediated by nature. The result is a narrative that engages clay bricks as main building material, helping to develop the potential of the material as well as the practices of the local construction.
