Paris, France during 1930’s the heart of intellectual and artistic life of Paris. Ironically, during this period a small village where local artist formed the realization and creation of the design. Distinctive arches and curves along the structure and fine black iron window frames throughout. Outfitted with refurbishments, custom hand-made or special ordered items and forming a new residence called Appartement Montparnasse at Ikebukro Tokyo, Japan.
The house forms a linear structure in a cantilever cube with one being open and the other enclosed.The house is understood frontally by the layering of principal facades.The first of these consisting of a stainless cable rail frame Cor-ten panel and mesh fence defines the outer edge of the house’s boundary.It acts as a focal point, receiving the stair between front driveway and side entrance level.The house’s form is also reflected in the distortion of the plan of the two decks above.
The architectural component was designed to facilitate yoga, gastronomical experiences, and cultural event spaces for music, art, performances, intellectual discourse and fashion. These activities are stacked vertically over three levels, including an open to sky terrace courtyard. The porous, perforated nature of the skin allows the project to breathe and ventilate thereby reinforcing the relationship between the inside and outside, between body and soul.
This is a four-storied multi-tenant building on a narrow site located. Special attention was given to insolation to sunlight and eyesight on the east and west elevations. For insolation, aluminum mesh is fitted to the ALC outer wall just like rattan blinds to block the sunlight most effectively, with their curves allowing for expansion in summer and contraction in winter. It was broken down and were rearranged to five Japanese traditional colors, which provide eye-catching effect and landscape preservation.
It was primarily an extension of the existing house to accommodate a home theater, lounge, pool, changing room, a gym and addition of two suites with dressers and toilets Building is like an object or a sculpture not bound by any classical archetypal or conventional construction system. The form is just like a natural peal from the landscape. The pool house is overlooking the green, its perched, the construction system is shell based.
The new wellness block (at an existing retreat) building is named Anaha meaning well being or to breathe freely in Sanskrit. Being a venue of the Relias & Chateux, the retreat saw a huge influx of guests from around the world. Understanding the concepts of yoga and meditation, the design was planned to be well connected with the outdoors and finished with neutral tones of earthy and Indian materials to bring out the true essence of the space without compromising on the design, spatial and hospitality experiences.
