The designers made one side of the room dominant by opening a corner (with two French windows) out to the terrace, which extended the space, (giving it the desired proportions) and connected the interior to the exterior. The ‘disordered’ hexagon shape was re-mastered into a regular one, and a general mathematical correlation was applied between all the interior elements.
The key to the task from the architectural perspective was ‘structural combinatorics and working with the proportions and scale of a geometric shape.’
A combination of natural and warm materials on the one hand, and flawless, synthetic and ‘cold’ materials on the other, was introduced to achieve the balance of sensations needed in the space.
Mode Design Studio told us, ‘We created a strong, distinguished and conceptual impression that adjusts and masters the space, acquiring design inspiration from nature – the honeycomb – through the use of a simple geometric shape (equilateral triangle and the derivative regular hexagon). Furthermore we differentiated the desired effects by changing scale. In this project we applied some of the insights from the work of the great architect Antoni Gaudí.’
