Layers of White – Pitsou Kedem Architects
From the architect:
“A expansive, penthouse apartment built regarding a central round motif that divides the blazing into two parts subsequent to a narrow, long corridor that, in essence, divides the house into two determined wings.
In an attempt to combine the two sections and transform the genuine nucleus into a association along together after that the spaces, the architect chose to lid it as well as conscious, developing geometrically shaped textures especially expected for the project. The cladding is three dimensional and made from large sheets of white painted aluminum hung regarding the subject of the nucleuss ceiling. The apartments spaces were expected to make a meditative announce afterward than monochromatic sheets all based on the order of the color white. Through a produce an effect regarding fresh and shadow and textures, fused layers of white, a propos shimmering in their richness are created, displaying many varied and deep hues of white.
The apartments screen walls, originally small aluminum squares, were exchanged for terrible windows as soon as no horizontal divisions that come clean the urban landscape to burst into the apartments spaces. The citys animatronics, its depth and richness of color, its differing landscapes, all locate exposure to environment in the monochromatic, on the subject of monastic sky that seems to invite the urban character to coalesce along together in addition to the apartments design. Layers of utter, soft white, which appear to have taken a propos a oscillate frequency and strengths from the thrash of the city. The geometric, developing shapes in the form of clusters of triangles reverberates, despite its whiteness, considering the citys pulse and simulation. The associated triangular clusters appear as a motif in metaphor to the order of the balconys green wall that was especially intended for the apartment and in which we will place nature in same geometric frames.
The apartments fresh fittings unmodified the considered and thrifty express of the apartments lines. Long, skinny strips of fresh bring out the linier axis along the length of the corridor and ceiling fixtures that appear as works of origami compliments the triangular, three dimensional walls. Hidden lighting is installed along the walls that emphasizes the surfaces of the triangles and creates, from the central wall a wall that is in addition to a sculpture, dramatic and lithe. Thus the apartments various layers of white create a surprising intensity and geometrical, original and obvious forms subsequently than to a utter backdrop and a narrowing in the apartments colors. The designers option of such a monastic and shy atmosphere be of the same opinion the unadulterated backdrop that enables the vent to encompass every one of city seen upon the horizon.”
