Other influences are drawn from Victorian shell bouquets, which have been translated into a luxuriously hand-crafted Macrame.

The site is developed to its maximum both visually and physically, with a play on transparency and the flow of spaces from in to out. A variety of outdoor rooms complement the bold pavilion forms. They are linked by a circulation gallery – which also creates an axial focus for the full length of the site on entry.

Insider Studios in Zaragoza / elii

In this way, the main space of each house is freed and the area of intervention is reduced. A laundry area common to both houses is also placed in the common area.

Duplex Villa In Shanghai // TBDC

11

The duplex villa is located in Pudong, Shanghai, China; it is a residence built for three generations under one roof.
The height of each floor is restricted; hence the in-ceiling equipment is designed in areas outside the main area in order to optimize the spatial height. At the same time, the ceiling construction is reduced to minimize visual clutter. Ambient lighting is independent from functional lighting; it is presented through multichannel light controllers on the ceiling, wall surface and floor to create a soft visual aesthetic. Sensor operated functional lighting is installed in accordance with living functions for greater convenience.
