“The solar by no means knew how nice it was till it hit the facet of a constructing”. – Louis Kahn
Goals + Necessity + Accessible assets = Undertaking
Fixing the essential equation of materializing desires via a bounded Price range, we initiated the development means of our architectural workplace. The train begins with the experimental transformation means of supplies, resembling earth, Wooden and glass, configuring them between two present timber: a flame tree, that stays outdoors however framed, and a guavirá tree, that stands in the course of the house to share our firm.
The 30-cm rammed earth partitions maintain the burden of the roof, resting in solely 20 cm of its width, exploiting the structural qualities of this materials. All the furnishings and doorways are fabricated from recycled picket varieties used within the concrete slab that covers the workplace. The library detaches from the partitions to ensure that the sunshine to proceed its path, suspending books and work, studio’s most treasured treasures.
If gentle builds time, and gravity builds house, the environment of Earthbox is constructed with the sound of jazz, the scent of incense and the flavour of contemporary espresso.
