The King’s House opens to public
The renovation of the King’s House focuses on the architectural qualities of the 1930ies aristocratic mansion. The mansion character, significantly altered in 1970ies has evolved into a conglomerate of the additions that took away authentic qualities of the building, making it less monumental, oddly proportioned and at points unfunctional. The renovation strips down the altered state of the house to its bare essentials. Further on the project relies on the fundamentals neglected over the years – the construction grid of the roof, the concrete vaulting, rich stucco and frescoes.
Miami stairs design
The office received a commission to design a staircase in a villa located in Miami Indians Creek Island. The pattern design that encloses the stairs is inspired by the typical Miami Art Deco aesthetics. At the same time, the pattern provides the stairs structural frame. The 2D – 3D idea of the villa signature pattern is translated to 3D design for the stairs. The staircase architecture appears not only as a utilitarian element which connects two levels within the house but as the playful sculpture that fragments the movements of the house inhabitants.
