"less is more" -MIES VAN DER ROHE-

The design of this library is inspired by the art movement by the architect Mies Van Der Rohe. By using pillars as support of the building, at the same time, it creates an illusion as though you are in the depth of woods surrounded by river or on top of a lake. Facade design is inspired by the abstraction of leaves from trees when we look up to a tree to filter light that penetrates into the building. The building features passive design as it uses cross ventilation system and shading system as well as rainwater harvesting by butterfly roof.

Terraforma School

Thoroughfare


Waldorf education is the system that was introduced to us in our semester five. It is a education system where students do not learn in the classroom only, specifically not just theories. It teaches children on how to plant trees, how to grow crops, cut a wood, handicrafts, etc. and most importantly, students are filled with excitement when they are going to school. In this project, we were to design a kindergarten school for children ranging from the age of 4 - 6.

The

spaces are divided into 4 strips, each with different

functions. But in general, they are separated into: canteen and office, classrooms, art and music classes. Each of the strips are connected by a joint: hardscape pathways, multi-level slope and stairs pathway and terrace overlooking the lake. The purpose of this clear division of spaces is so that when an activity is being carried out, it does not disturb another activity that is going on as well. For example music and workshop, music and science class and so on. The classrooms will not be filled only with chairs and tables. But there will musical instruments, kitchen for cooking, plant nursery tools, dining table, as well as black board. Roof Plan


terraforma school WHAT IF AN ARCHITECTURE CAN BE NATURE ITSELF?

The main concept is to make the whole architecture invisible, blending into the earth into a single entity. Forming spaces underneath the ground as though they are inside the ground itself. Since the ancient times, people have been close to nature and they evolved tremendously since primal being to a modern scientist like Einstein. Nature environments aid in learning, absorbing knowledge faster than we know because it involves most of our human senses like sight, touch, smell, etc. However, the school can only be visible from one angle, which is the lake signifying difference in perspective. A building that is completely invisible in one angle can be completely visible in another angle.

A multi-purpose tower which houses several activity group that includes mall, banquet hall, apartment housing, beachfront villa and terrace in Teluk Cempedak. The site is situated next to a beach where the grounds are unevenly shaped with a lot of tiny hills and valleys which reminds us of Grand Canyon. The Podium area is shaped like a giant valley that is substracted from a rectangular box. The tower is then aligned to the shaped of the canyon to gain max. sunlight and to avoid wind tunnel. Facade of the tower and the structure of the podium are generated from from a parametric or blueprint kind of lines from that of Grand Canyon.

less is more -MIES VAN DER ROHE-

The client envisioned that his project has to be multifunctional in such a big site with plenty of living unit types with retails and office buildings. Our proposal is to design a villa that separates itself from the main body of the building to have a unique identity and better privacy. For the other living units such as terrace and apartment, they are tied by a design unity which is inspired from the shape of the beach. We visualize that the lines of the beach are as though curving in into the building and we decided to bend the curves into both vertical and horizontal line shaping the building and the circulation. One of the unique selling point of the project is that it features local plantations into the building as the owner also owns a plantation company. By doing so, he is able to increase the value of the building as well as his plantation company.

WITHOUT A SENSE OF CARING, THERE CAN BE NO SENSE OF COMMUNITY -ANTHONY J.D’ANGELO-

Our firm was commissioned to design an affordable housing in Gambang, Kuantan, Pahang, Malaysia. The typical affordable housing in Malaysia will have very minimal amount of quality and very compact spaces, not to mention the designs. In our design solution, we want to bring a green belt to connect the neighbour into a huge chain of lifestyle. This is also to solve the problem where people who have less income can plant their own food as well as to have higher awareness of the environment by taking care of it themselves. By doing so, they are able to pay less maintenance fee for their housing.

The veil of sanctity WHAT IF A CHURCH BEHAVES LIKE A HOTEL?

A competition pitch for Chinese (Cantonese) Methodist Church. The competition brief was to design a church or rather, renovate a current church into a newly, more inviting and iconic Church in its vicinity. The exact location is in Pudu, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The church has 2 sanctuaries that accomodates more than 500 people and stands tall at 7 stories. And a podium that serves as a plaza for people to gather after worship to wait for their transport or to continue socialize.

ARC HITECTURE SHOULD SPEAKOF ITS TIME AND PLACE, BUT YEARN FOR TIMELESSNESS -FRANK GEHRY-

In this project (competition), we rethink the typical design of church in Malaysia, where people always gather in some kind of place before heading to the sanctuary. The problem with the typical church design in Malaysia is before going in to the sanctuary, there is no place to gather or to wait, for the people to chit chat or to catch up with other people. Therefore in our design, we emphasize in the space ‘Extension of Sanctuary’ which is used before and after going in the sanctuary. After at the sanctuary, most people will go out at once, which will clog the entrance, hence this place is made for other people to sit and wait while chatting.

The project being situated in Solomon Islands and in the middle of a large development area, there is a tiny piece of land dedicated for resort housing, more as a retreat. The resort housings were intended to be designed for ultimate comfort and convenience since there are convenience stores, school, office and other facilities nearby. The house contains three rooms (all facing the sea), large living room, family room, recreation room, dining table that faces the sea as well, a garden and a swimming pool. The houses are all connected by an esplanade that leads to the beach and other water activity areas.

Our design approach is closely related to the design of the bungalow, We wanted the pavilion to give off a good feeling when you look from the bungalow, at the same time, We do not want the pavilion to be too enclosed, as it will feel ‘sad’. So we do plantation on top of the pavilion, to at least relaxes the client when they look out from the window. The pavilion consists of two floors, the ground floor is alfresco and the first floor is music room, the music room overlooks to neighbouring landscape, while the alfresco stands next to swimming pool and basketball court. The slanted design is also prominent and symbolic in the site as that is that first thing people see when they come into the land.

communities in the neighborhood. Allowing this site as a kick-starter for social breakthrough in creating a community without boundary. Having said that, the design intention is to marry each identity of different communities, creating a continuous loop of cultural interaction, allowing each to learn from another, and crafting a new hybrid of a better and stronger bond of one community. The idea is to incorporate series of event hubs for carnival purposes as to facilitate interactions of similar and different culture as surrounding buildings were designed as self-isolation element. We believe this design could draw each isolated community to a point where they could be connected with people of different walks of life thus learning from each other’s differences, turning each individual to a better self, and later a community of sympathy.

Competition


Design Development


The competition was hosted by Kaira Looro in 2017 in Senegal, Africa. The main topic is to design a spiritual architecture in the site where draught and flood is common throughout the year. In our opinion, a spiritual architecture or space does not represent religious, instead it represents the spiritual part of the human as well as the mind. In our design, we translate it as a space for people to dwell, to think deep or even to pray for their own belief. To pray according to ones belief in a culturally rich country is a blessing in our opinion and we wish to emphasize more on this principle. The building is oriented in such a way that it welcomes people from all direction. The elevated feature also supports flood when it happens.

The form of the building is determined by the directiopn of the sun and to allow a certain level of privacy and view from various spaces. In this design, we realize that privacy is one of the highest priority in the design as well as disaster proof. The peak of the building is significant as well as iconic and is noticable from afar. It is also the entrance of the building. So people are able to identity the entrance even from afar. The facade of the building features thatched wall in which allows shading, water proofing and most importantly, wind ventilation. Can be replaced materials. Entrance
