Collage Condo

KUBE Architecture en tant que Architectes.

This condominium renovation in Washington DC is theculmination of a multi-phase project that spanned a 2-yearperiod. The firm partners passed the project back andforth, each designing a new space, but working off theprevious one. This process resulted in an “architecturalcollage” - similar materials were utilized, while new oneswere introduced in eachphase. The spaces overlap andflow from one to the next, while also retaining their own

character.

 

Three design strategies were employed:

 

1 - Layering: A limited palette of materials were set intodifferent spatial planes to operate as a series of distinctlayers.

 

2 - Framing: Materials and elements in the foreground frameothers in the distance, to create an episodic experienceas one moves through the space.

 

3 - Folding: Bamboo flooring and other materials seemto fold from floor to wall, and wall toceiling, creating aconsistent look overall.

 

The refined finishes (wood, glass, and metal) contrastthe raw materials of the original condo (concrete, pipes,and ductwork). Energy-efficient LED lighting is usedthroughout as“lines of light” floating as objects, orhighlighting key defining elements.

1. Raydoor / Sliding Doors
