​Redesign of "Honeyhouse"


Feb-Apr 2018

With shades of light to sustain an intimate space in a splendid landscape.


        The "Moor Honeyhouse" in Cashiers is a project by Marlon Blackwell Architects(1998). As part of the research project of looking into its technique to combine glass as part of its façade structure, I started to think of a design that might fully explore the beauty of integrating these two materials together to form a space. 

        After the re-studies of the landscape, the form of the house takes the form that adapts to the fluidity of this hilly area. 

        This change blurs the boundaries of the 4 façades from the original design, but another 4 undefined façades are shaped by the combination out of the different proportions of the two materials —  steel and glass. One to close up the structure and the other to open it up to the landscape and its scarce passers-by from the side.  Because of the differences of transparency, people that are in the space can move around to seek for the most private and comfortable corner. 

       位于美国卡西米尔的“Moor Honeyhouse”是Marlon Blackwell Architects(1998)的一个建筑设计作品。 作为探究玻璃作为外部支撑结构的课题的一部分,我开始思考如何运用这个结构以人的高度美感重新设计。将这个原设计带给我最大的触动——通过玻璃和钢版的错合重叠将空间与环境相互交融的纤细触感最大限度的表现出来。
        相对于原设计的这种设计外形上的变化将原有设计中4个立面的边界模糊化。整个环绕的外立面由两种材料的不同比例组合而成,相互过渡衔接。 钢材的使用阻隔空间的视觉透视,而玻璃则将外部景观带入内部,偶尔路过的登山者可以通过这个半透明的设计得到室内的一瞥,甚至他们的视线可以随着自身的移动看到空间另一头的景观。因为空间透明度的变化,在室内的人们也根据对自身空间的要求调节自己在空间中的位置,已达到自己对空间安全舒适度的需求。
