When creativity meets the sensitivity for nature, Antony Gibbon Design’s architecture was born. Embracing nature’s forms as a source of inspiration and pushing the boundaries of architectural design, Antony sees the environment as an important driving force behind his work, each structure is individually created to consider the surroundings using sustainable materials wherever possible. He aims to create organic forms that exist in nature using natural materials that unite the two. The sustainability as mission of the project and style of living as well.
Here, we propose two of his last projects: Orka and the Moduu House
Symmetry and geometry are at the heart of ORKA’s design – it’s twenty four beams coalesce, forming a pivoted illusion which transforms angles into a seemingly curved form.
Using the frame as an aesthetical starting point – the interlacing beams naturally create diamond shaped patterns which becomes part of the geometry and symmetry of the structure.
The ground floor is an impressive 10 meters in diameter allowing for a large open plan living space. A sweeping spiral staircase leads you to another three floors, the top floor being a outdoor viewing platform and balcony with panoramic views from the top.
THE MODUU HOUSE
Available in six different variations of one shape, the Moduu House can be joined using any of the six variations, forming many different layouts and configurations.
Each modular unit measures 2.5 x 2.5 meters with one or more sides ‘open’ to allow each unit to be connected onto another increasing the interior space. This modular approach gives an endless variation of layouts that allows you to be as creative with the space you like, joining as many units together as you wish relative to your budget.
When the units are connected, the repetition and overall arrangement of structures together creates a very interesting sequence, transforming the simplistic single unit into a cluster of geometric staggered forms.
The exterior is finished in a traditional Japanese charred wood cladding known as Shou Sugi Ban. Large minimal full length windows allow ample light into each structure with the option of a sliding door on some of the units. An exterior platform is available as part of the modular series allowing you to be innovative with the layout of this exterior space between or around the structures.
