The project is about new beginnings for a young family. It’s response to the harsh beauty and extremes of the surrounding landscape. The outcome is a series of pavilions oriented around a communal living space, allowing for efficiency and adaptability to the environment and the family’s changing needs. The building is a response to the recent history of the landscape whilst also drawing on its heritage. The site is a part of a parcel of land that was re-released following the 2003 Canberra bush fires.

Light+ Building 2016
Like a stage, a panoramic picture of the alpine world of Glarus frames the stand at the trade fair Light+ Building in Frankfurt 2016. The snow-covered mountains of Glarus, heavily pixelated and coloured by the Zurich graphic design studio NORM, become the identity of the Swiss light brand. Delicate white steel tubes on a white pedestal characterise the scenery on the ground. The whole picture is reminiscent of an abstract landscape. The sky is formed by a frame covered with white fabric, which reflects the intense light of the standing lamps downwards from above. The result is a surreal scenery, charged with radiant light in front of a picture of the landscape in which context the lamps are produced.

Therefore, we have decided to create a refined and decorative interior. Monochrome background enhances rich colours and allows the artworks to stand out. Cold grey tones are balanced by velvet fabrics which also make a contrast to the textured ceiling.
