Radius Scaling

Jun 2017

The Commander's House, Amsterdam

We scale the space to our working behaviors within the radius of cylinder.

        Located at the Marine Area, Amsterdam, along the harbor, the Commander's House enjoys a decent location. This is a plan to redesign the co-working environment within the Commander House and reconnect the house to its resourceful surroundings.

        The resembling bamboo-raft-and-scaffolding structure can mold any possible shape, establishing a scaffolding inside and outside any objects. This makes the structure connects the design in the house to basically everything around.  A stop in front of the house above the water. A leisure area around a tree at the green. The plan tends to transform the Marine Area into a new landscape with the 15 cm(d) cylinders. 

        All the surface in the design are made out of numerous touching points from the cylinder surface. There won' t be a spot where you find it comfortable for good. People will have to find another point-surface after sitting on one point for too long and bottom hurting.  It is a co-working space meant for exploration and searching for your own privacy within the scaffolding.
