A client seeks insomnia relief via architecture, reports Architecture & Design.
In response to the need for isolation, BLOXAS conceived of a curved footprint that would refract sound and control heat gain without losing the potential for connectivity, nor compromise views of the garden. This outside-in approach was then used as a launching pad for the rest of the project’s design.
“The tapered space formed an anchor for the entire project,” explains BLOXAS. “[It was] designed to control its environment, primarily light and sound. The space’s perforated acoustic ceiling panels provide sound clarity and quietening, while heavily insulated walls and double doors with custom seals form air gaps, strengthening the acoustic condition.”
