BASIS
The investor is set to renovate a house from the 60s. His wish is to create a new interior, an addition to the living room in a form of conservatory and a new jutting roof in front of the house to emphasize the entrance.
CONCEPT
There are three interventions that define the house anew. We decided that all three will not yield the existing structure of the house but will intentionally step away from it. We wish to create objects that will add the existing house value and enrich its expression; much like jewellery embellishes a woman, while the jewellery gains on value.
We avoided the classic procedure of interior design to beautify the room with pretty pieces of furniture. The principle of the author’s group is to try and design space itself with the furniture and as a whole becomes the subject of design. The result is a thick wall that combines storage, sitting, shelter and heating. The wall encircles and defines the space.
