The dwelling is situated in an urban gap; a space in between built and enclosed spaces and often times, an underutilized laneway. The project brief requires a space for contemplation and meditation amidst the busy streets and livelihood of the city.
Inspired by the juxtapose between the program and site, the concept that drives the design techniques came from the idea of an oasis- an unexpected fertile growth in this concrete chaos.
The dwelling sprouts from the ground to elevate the dweller to a higher place, a place that gives room for reflection and imagination.The intensity of the enclosure’s surface varies. There are spaces where one can fully immerse in their own thinking and there are also those that extend to the surrounding environment like a viewing deck.
