Arch within Arch (GB1610384.8) (2013-16): A telescopic structure (1a, 1b and 1c) operates on a sliding mechanism (2) and moves to expose the overlaying arch viaduct (3) and permit periodic servicing – addressing a legal requirement that restricts ixtures within the arch. The structure is mobile and formed of sandwiching construction for acoustic and thermal insulation (4). This structure is isolated on vibration pads (5) and loats off the ground to absorb the vibration from passing trains. A solar reflective foil (6) works with sun paths to collect, reflect and amplify daylight and naturally illuminate the dark interior spaces. © Undercurrent Architects

A Morning Greeting

Format ImagePosted on Categories architectureTags , , , ,

a morning greeting | 2012 | In this project, we tried to create a private living space in urban area by managing the balance between a friendly gesture to city and a peaceful personal life: The deeper you walk in, the more you feel the existing of a “host”. This environment does not say “welcome” as a good place, but only say “hello” as a kind man.
