This penthouse house belongs to a young couple who are avid collectors of the Be@rbrick toys. Thus, the design narrative started with a platoon of bears from outer space coming to Earth and settling on top of a Tembusu tree in a vast rainforest.
Exploiting the high ceiling of the penthouse and using the methodology of “Injecting Architecture”, the irregularly-shaped floor plan is being carved in such a way that the entire space is seemingly defined by the few families of volumetric forms that were “injected”. The aluminium-clad “spaceship” bearbrick display cabinet which volume visually extend to the other side of the home, encasing the TV wall cabinet system at the Family area. Part of this “family” are the 3 “light wells” light boxes which “protrude” into the living space through the curved ceiling.
