A selection of projects and experience prior to the formation of FF studio.
- Design Story 01
The project questions the issue of CONCEALMENT and REVEALING that act as a critique against Modernism that denies masking. It suggests the exposed concrete and transparent glazing that are indicative to the modernist idea of transparency, which implies openness and accessibility are often contradictory to the resident’s desire of discretion.
However, rather than being limited by the use of blinds and solid wall for concealment, I believe Architecture must become a framework that expands rather than limits the ambiguity of expressions.
Modernist Transparency is transformed into Ornamental Masking.
Thus, the project explores the idea of Ornamentation of Discretion that seek to create secrecy and masking for a Discreet high profile client, Guy Wildenstein and his Private Collection of Master Paintings, on an Indiscreet Modernist Penthouse of OneHydePark, Knightsbridge.
It challenges and reconciles the issues of concealment and revealing through ornamentation. It proposes that the best means the sustain secrecy and discretion is not to relinquish exposure, but conversely, to intensify it.
- Design Story 02
The proposal focus on the production of biological goods and extending the term farming to mechanic modes of fabrication, assemblage and manufacture. From this unnatural bound between the organic and the artificial, the design explores how architecture can become the transition between productive enclaves and urban life.
- Design Story 03
The project is developed as an subdivision of skyscraper in a series of clustered spaces-that can accommodate zones of major programmatic categories, in this way, clustering of any dominant programmatic component is avoided. So the project’s juxtaposition programme cluster is unlike the city plan. it celebrates the interior being a subdivision using atrium informing different programmatic spaces
