I work with architects and property developers, mainly taking ideas and presenting them as images or video even. A while ago I started communicating with a London based firm who took an interest in one my own ideas. The project has since been on hold, simply because I have been otherwise occupied.
Principally the idea behind the project was to develop spaces relating to what would be a natural human environment, but at the same time respecting the modern. This is an example of another scheme that I had started developing as an idea only:
Very important ideas within this project were water, light, communal spaces and relax spaces. This was on an individual scale, the idea was to expand on these ideas and make it into a sort of retreat where say 20-30 people could be invited.
Perhaps from which Movnat-like or Cross fit courses could be run. I take alot of reference from this video of a Movnat workshop in Thailand.
We had been looking principally at Brazil, Ecuador or Costa Rica to develop the project, places of extreme beauty with both mountain and sea close; with consistent climate. I am very much interested in sustainable architecture, using the local resources.
Tabascón, Costa Rica
Los Frailes, Ecuador
Limon, Costa Rica
There are several other ideas that I am looking into incorporating into the project, for instance, an orchard, livestock etc... Anyway, really I am looking for input, ideas. What is a paleo space? If anyone thinks they have anything they can offer me, any references, I would be extremely grateful. I need to put together a kick ass presentation. Thanks in advance!
edit to the project:
apart from the basic idea of making water / light / mixed indoor outdoor spaces important to the design: adding:
- A communal fire place
- Standing workspaces
- Squatting toilets
- natural / local materials An emphasis on recycled materials or even entire buildings
thank you everyone for the input, I am happy to hear any more ideas thanks again...
