VEXed + Voided : Two Acts

Act I : An exhibition pavilion to showcase competition entries to the 2018 International Design Competition, organized by the Association of Siamese Architects (ASA). The pavilion embraces the annual competition theme VEX: Agitated Vernacular, by subjecting wood, the themed material, to abrasive processes of peeling & sanding, charring, or burning.  The vexed wood is then hand-crafted: rough-sawn, stacked, and tied, to form two black & white cubic geometries that host the exhibition materials. Charcoal, mixed with leftover wood from the processes, is contained in multiple cubic gabion baskets for area seating. Conventional fabrication and vernacular construction techniques merge with contemporary ones to become the new vernacul... En savoir plus

Cocina María Luisa

The project finds inspiration in the kitchens of villages: those where meal preparation uses firewood and smoke, and as a result of this, the shade of the walls gets dark. And also those where there’s a smell of wet soil and the utensils are made of pewter and clay and the whole space revolves around the act of feeding the soul. Jaime Navarro   Materiality in its purest form, of each of the elements that make up the space, is the leading thread of the proposal; apparent concrete, burned wood and volcanic stone plates complement the discourse, crowned by a suspended metallic gabion which contains broken pieces of clay objects: everyday use food and drink containers such as plates, pots, jars and glasses amongst others.

The Interlock Lobbies

A series of volumetric explorations, the lobbies at The Interlock are the public-facing circulation hubs strategically placed throughout this large, mixed-use development’s ground plane. The most prominent lobby is a two-story space located at the crossroads of a hotel and multiple retail and office tenants. We designed it as a monolithic charred wood block, with sculpted elements revealing an underlying layer of rich, warm wood signifying active gathering spaces. Branching out are thin concrete bridges connecting people to and from other areas, which makes this lobby the very heart of the development. We carried this language of sculpted space to the various smaller public lobbies for clarity and connection throughout the project. En savoir plus

Selection Restaurant

Did You Know That… The main characters of “Selection” – a modern and exquisite gastronomic play – are fish and meat? The main plot puts a spotlight on these two in a unique chef’s interpretation (Ayk Weishtort), exploring the subject in an unconventional way. Sundukovy Sisters took on the role of set designers, creating minimalistic décor, so that no detail of the action escapes the eyes of a curious observer. The interior marries two polarities as contrasting as the stars themselves: hot and cold, fiery and water-based, rugged and smooth. Reflection in Our Design The heroes were attired in different colors, which prevail in their habitat as well: “gold” for fish and “silver&... En savoir plus
