Publication – 'Camping in a High-Rise' MA architecture course at the Royal College of Art. Together with our students we explored the contrast between the mass and permanence of buildings and the temporary, light-weight and ad-hoc notion of camping. For more joy, please explore our students' work at the RCA Virtual Show or you can order the publication from us. email@example.com
A semi-detached house, two apartment buildings and a restaurant frame the new square around the allotment garden in Klingelbeek. Building 5,6,7,8 are nearing completion in Arnheim.
The Vinyl house is characterised by three key elements: The ‘Main House’ is defined by an efficient, compact, pre- fabricated wooden structure, optimised for short spans and minimal material use. The quality of this ground floor lies in its openness and immidiate relationship to the external landscape. The ‘Umbrella’, is a light-weight glass roof with integrated solar panels, and the ‘Outdoor Living Room’ is located between the main house and the ‘Umbrella’ roof, offering a special and surprising external room, used as extension of the living space - a stove, sun bed, barbecue, jacuzzi or conservatory for growing plants, use it however you want. The house is designed with the aim of using timber and recycled plastics and to achieve an Outstanding BREEAM rating.
Once a Virtual Reality model, now reality. The villa is on site, expected completion end of 2021.
Lecture - 'A House and its Ideal Neighbour' lecture at Melbourne School of Design, Tuesday 5th of October.
