SAY Architects as Architects

Elle Deco magazine invited Say Architects to design a temporary exhibition space based on the concept of “Home”. Home is unique and specific for each person, a home could be either tranquil or fresh, passion or peaceful, happy or exciting. We abstract these emotions to a four-segment space with a different colour; each colour represents space and an atmosphere.

A bright yellow exterior space, a passionate red kitchen, a green, peaceful living room and a fresh, clean blue bathroom, these four space are united by a vast floating white roof and form a conceptual “Home”.

Starting from the yellow exterior area, the four spaces gradually change their height from above the white roof, floating between ceiling and floor, further to sunken into the floor. This variation generates a variation sense of enclosure.

The geometries are made of translucent fabric fixed to the steel structure. We select the fabric to reach exquisite transparency, it gives the whole structure a very light quality, but the geometries are still quite substantial.

Several openings on the white roof allow people to see the upper store through the floating surface.
