Design Strategies for Greener Living
Space as a consequence of a group of interactions, as the sum of specifics.

Solution

AGENDA

We believe sustainable design should be the norm, not an exception. That is to understand green strategies as a part of a set of conditions rather than a �specialty� feature. The intervention should be minimal in order for life to take place in its own way. It cannot be intrusive nor imposed, instead it should have the ability to subtly blend within its context.

We thought of space as a consequence of a group of interactions, as the sum of specifics. As a result of a deep understanding of delight. Life taking place in its earthiest manner in a technological era: through literature, music, movies, passion, food and so on.


OBJECTIVE

To embrace the joy of daily life. To pursue aspirations of comfort and pleasing design aesthetics by stressing the limits of conventional planning without impositions of any sort. 


STRATEGIES

  1. Use of lo-tech materials and strategies (folding, sliding, rotation) to achieve a hi-tech modern life.
  2. To stress the angle of surfaces in order to be space efficient and bring as much light possible.
  3. Redefine the function of objects that were created for a different original purpose to achieve multiple possibilities of living.
