The whole point of the process described in this series of articles (see Part 1 and Part 2) is that it is now yours. Show others that they are critical to the design process. Performance is a question that is constantly drilled into our forms of expression and designed spaces.
Performance is a question that is constantly drilled into our forms of expression and designed spaces. We obtain metrics for everything, sometimes forgetting that the numbers alone do not always define the space and the experience in it. The questions that were asked in the beginning of the project are for experiencing a place as we sense it and can begin to develop our method of thinking. This process of taking in the quantifiable, numeric characteristics of a place and translating them to the qualitative, experiential expressions has been condensed in this process to share it with others. We can find what interests us and moves our design and profession. These interests are then combined with our experience to make the vegetated design framework and Turtletown.
This is a process in which the method of getting there is just as important as the resulting product. This work was completed over the course of a three-hour charrette (a fast, concentrated design meeting). I hope that this process helps you in your future work, or future home projects that also have a series of needs.

Have you ever witnessed a house that’s so breathtakingly modern and huge that you feel as though you could get lost just wandering its hallways and rooms to marvel at the aesthetic and decor? Well, that’s how we felt when we first saw pictures of Wind House, a private home in Bangkok, Thailand. The more we looked, however, the more we realized that there was something a little bit more unique about this particular home compared to others like it: it incorporates nature! More…
We’ve always loved the unique aesthetic that architects establish when they build a home that differs greatly in style from the other buildings around it, or from what you’d expect to see in a particular area or neighbourhood. For example, there are few things quite as cute as a home built with traditional style and decor to make it look like an old fashioned structure nestled among contemporary buildings on a modern street. The appeal goes the other way as well, though!
More and more, adult couples are choosing to live in communal residences rather than taking on the fiscal and physical commitments that come with being home owners. Rather than being solely responsible for the upkeep of things like yards, swimming pools, and the general area around their homes, people who live in communal residences split those responsibilities between them, which often means that the homes stay even more well put together and beautiful looking than usual! The Ramatuelle residential project, which was completed by architectural designer Laurence Sonck in 2015, is no exception!
Have you always dreamed about spending a beautiful weekend in the wilderness, enjoying all the natural wonders that a gorgeously calming forest has to offer? Well, you’re certainly not alone in that desire. In fact, some people want to experience that type of relaxation so much that they actually choose to build their homes in wooded areas in order to create that kind of lifestyle for themselves full time.
