Happy Valentine’s Day to the world! ♥️♥️
At iOsef Architects, each of our projects is designed with care and love! On this special occasion, we got inspired from the work of Edward Hopper that marks well the universal emotions of the last 12 months, add to that the hope from Banksy topped up with the many appraisals we produced this year!
Paintings: Edward Hopper and Banksy
Design: iOsef Architects
The design reflects some thoughts about Birth, Life, Death and the After. This is represented by two main walls that their architectural language changes depending on the functions that lie behind. It is a dance between Life and Death.
Inspired from the work of Robert Therrien, 2003, Tate Modern
The residential development explores the question of scale within its context by bringing the mansard to the street level . This will generate a controversial contrast between scale and a pleasant interior by living the space from within.
Our approach is to develop the project in 3 blocks that step down towards the southeast and generate urban voids to reduce the possibility of creating an elongated wall. This approach allows to provide openings within the site and avoid overlooking the neighbours. At Clapham Road, the massing depth is a continuity of the 2 listed buildings. The back bit of the listed site sits within the extension of the void created at the back. This approach sits harmoniously within the urban context. It adds value to the Urban Cluster by creating a quality enclosure to the courtyards and back gardens.
