The power of ‘simple’. A calm
pallette of constructive materials,
aimed at creating harmony in a peaceful
environment, finding richness in natural
textures; in breathing wood, in the
rythm of plant life, the smoothness
of concrete or stone, the sound
of bare feet.
The challange of detail. Taking
the project to the level of the smallest
consideration, anticipating through
experience, demanding ourselves to
look closer and work harder to
provide those subtle elements that
make the moment perfect.
Making room for space. Taking
down obstacles replacing them
with depth and functionality,
using moving partitions instead
of walls, glass instead of brick,
pulling exteriors into interiors,
playing with levels and green
partitions to create distinct
environments connected by
an open plan.
Listening to light. Sensing it as it
changes and controlling its effect
on our living space. Using it to join
or divide environments providing
intimacy or dimension, silence or color,
a warm welcome, a quiet moment.
Combining materials and technology
to transfer or contain it when
and where it matters.
Understanding quality. Design
to simplify, both through visible and hidden
elements, contemporary and timeless,
to survive the test of time.
Weakness into strength. Transforming
a small balcony into a galleria filled with
succulent plants, and this new exterior into
a window visible from every area of the living
space. An initial lack of exteriors can suggest
open architecture, carefully oriented to
the source of natural light.
