one person spaces:
With these smallscale houses, we would like to search for spaces for meditations through different functions.
Each of them contains one particular function and serves as the meeting place of one person and one material-spiritual quality.
The first of them was the flower house, which is also working as the flower dryer of a small herb garden.
We always wanted to work with wool, which is the symbol of warmness for us.
We wanted to keep the material in its own pure presence.
For this, we used the structure of the hay-dryers, which can be commonly found in the eastern - european agriculture, and transformed it into a chair - height item, stuffed with wool.
A wool corner was also built, to test the material, acting as a dividing wall structure.
AU WORKSHOP + MARTON LOW
The _architecture uncomfortable workshop_ is a Budapest based architecture office. Which always tries to make experiments in small case projects. One of the biggest motivation for us, is the understanding of the contemporary vernacular architecture. We are continously looking for the situation, where comfort meets real human needs. While taking part in the production of objects and furniture, our idea of design has changed a lot over the years.
Our main interest lies in visual simplicity; specifically in simple methods of building (e.g. tools), which manifest themselves in built objects.
The process of constructing will have an impact on the final object, which – as we believe – is much more important.
Through design we search for the comfort situation: For us, the main aspect of architectual design is not form or function but the situation of balance between a person and their environment. This balance is our definition of architecture. Everything else is just a consequence of it.
