Appreciation towards Atelier Caracasfor providing the following description:

APTN1是Atelier Caracas事务所承接的第一个住宅项目,明显区别于加拉加斯住宅室内设计的传统方式。APTN1体现出的设计原则与首次亮相的Gardenia家具系列相似。设计目的是通过工业设计原理、非传统材料、矢量形式和玩味的设计元素融合刻奇的中世纪美学,聚焦建筑操作和设计原则的创新应用。

APTN1 is the first residential project undertaken by Atelier Caracas and is a marked departure from traditional approaches to residential interior architecture in Caracas. The principles embodied by APTN1 share affinities with those of the debut furniture collection, Gardenia. The intent is to splice and fuse kitsch mid-century aesthetics with principles of industrial design, unconventional materials, vectorized forms, and playful design elements. The focus remains on the architectural operations and the innovative application of design principles.

APTN1代表Atelier Caracas事务所建筑项目中精心打造的环境,保持了公司对奇思妙想的独特处理方式。带有Tonka式轮子穿孔金属滑动板贯穿整个空间,被称为“Rover Doors”(探测车门),参考了火星探测器和太空器械。

APTN1 is representative of the meticulously crafted environment that Atelier Caracas’ architecture projects bring to fruition, maintaining the firm’s characteristic approach to whimsy and fantasy. Integrated throughout the project are sliding perforated metal panels with Tonka-style wheels coined as “Rover Doors” a reference to the Mars Rover and space apparatus.

设计团队重新构思了客厅和家庭娱乐室中房间的分界点,利用Rover Doors创造出可变分区,使业主可以根据需要的私密程度打开和划分房间。

Reimagining points of separation between the rooms in the living and family room spaces, the Rover Doors were envisioned to create mutable partitions, a design solution allowing the owners to expose or segment rooms for desired levels of privacy.

Throughout the project, select walls are composed of modular glass bricks reviving a kitsch design element of the 70s and 80s rendered contemporary in the juxtaposition against surrounding elements of industrial design.

陶瓦与瓷砖,在传统的设计中通常用于户外露台或泳池露台地面,而在本项目中,Atelier Caracas事务所则将这种元素用在了厨房和家庭娱乐室的墙面上,石制瓷砖拼合出的菱形图案在墙壁上重复出现。未经处理的木材、暴露的水泥梁与混凝土模板,以及定制的穿孔金属吊灯营造出和谐统一的室内氛围,形成强而有力的空间视觉效果。

Where terracotta is a material traditionally associated with tiled flooring for an outdoor patio or pool terrace, Atelier Caracas leveraged the stone tiles for repeating diamond-pattern wall elements across the kitchen and the family room spaces. Untreated wood, exposed cement beams and moldings, and a suspended, proprietary perforated metal light system provide visual cohesion.

Taken as a whole, APTN1 achieves an environment that elevates industrial materials through attention to detail and unconventional application. As with the wider project portfolio, this project appropriates from design elements identified in sources across cinema, literature, design, fashion, and art. APTN1 assumes a holistic lifestyle vision, one that is hermetically distinct from the surrounding aesthetics and interior architectural style.
