Hour Glass Beach Villa | Competition | Residential
Design Brief: Max floor area 42 square meters
Design Solution: I used the inspiration of a hour glass to direct the design concept. For me, the beach is about forgetting time and getting lost in the experience of sand, sun, wind and water. The stairs acts as the transitioning device (sand) between the top (bedroom) and bottom (kitchen, dinning and bathroom). The cabin is open to the south and closed off and insulated to the north. Sand displaced by wind and footsteps across the slab makes for an interesting feature.
