Tween Coexistense

Tween coexistence is a project of business park hall, absolutely white, that incorporates accurately defined functioning fluidity and provides form curvature expression by shadow transitions. The purpose of reception desk transforms into waiting zone, which, in turn, transmutes into the elevator hall.

Welcome zone includes reception desk with 2 distinctive bends for work places. Desk is oriented in a way to utilize maximum of corner place restricted by the entrance to the neighboring office block and transition to the rest room.

Waiting zone contains L-shape sofa, back of which geometrically merges with stairs’ side that are providing to go up from entrance level to the slightly higher level of the lift hall. The long side of the sofa for guests overlays the difference between the main space floor and the translucent partition of the upper level.
The sofa’s pouf from 2 interconnected parts doesn’t have flat side faces and is a continuation of sofa’s shape, although could be reoriented and used partially.

The strips on the ceiling have 2 origins, over the reception desk and the waiting/transition zone. The former has island configuration and highlights the main part of the space while the latter marks the connection between the elevators and the waiting area.
Individual elements (i.e. reception desk, sofa) manufacturing comprised moulds CAM.

Head office of one of the biggest Ukrainian retail companies

head office of grocery in kyiv

Office interior for one of the biggest Ukrainian retail companies. The project area is 3000 m2. The main task was to provide sunlight and insolation in spaces with ceiling 5.6m height. The additional task was to create space, where people can work with pleasure and have some rest. It was decided to create ылнlightы and glass partitions in order to create second levels and maximize area utilization. This was crucial in spaces where сompactness were more important then flatness. Relax and activity zones were designed for workers’ rest and productivity.

прараметричний дизайн інтер`єру київ україна

Photo of the Apartment for Classmates. Studio with a separate bedroom with a magnificent view of western Kyiv has the maximum open space without a corridor. In addition to a spacious bathroom, the apartment also has a compact barn. Open space planning is based on the island location of the sofa and dining table. The pattern on the kitchen/bedroom window, the partition and the mirror are designed to portion the transparency, illumination and mirror. At the same time, open space geometry optimizes transits based on obstacle avoiding criteria.

GENERAL CONCEPT
The apartment belongs to a mixed typology: polyfunctional studio is complemented with separated bedroom and WC as well as a storeroom. The interior design was created for a young couple that aimed to get maximum simple space having an opportunity to get privacy in the night zone. Within the replanning the apartment was modified by deforming geometry of remaining partitions in order to get open-space polygon released from sharp angles and inefficient transits. The common shape of partitions is repeated in decoration and furnishing details. A special attention was paid to designing divisions on furniture and wholes/handles for its opening that both gave it unusual look and made it more holistic in its geometry in regard with the whole interior and decreased the costs for additional handles as these one make the facade solid in borders of one plane. A high-located window between kitchen zone and a bedroom serves as an additional light source for a cooking nook. Kitchen island serves both an additional working surface for cooking zone and shelves for wine bottles keeping and dinner table for 3-5 persons.

ALGORITHMIC / PARAMETRIC METHODS OF MORPHOGENESIS
A triangular 60˚ grid is taken as a modular system of open-space volume. Full-size triangles are represented as polyurethane panels on the walls and pieces of mirrors of the same size, that parcel into smaller parts towards wide studio`s window as a fractal.
Working space is partly separated from the rest of open-space with a glass closure the form of which widens by a modular structure of path where chances to hit its ledge is minimized. So what does the parametric design consist in. unlike the wall behind the tv set the partition is saturated not with right triangles but with parametric curves rhodonea that in this case close towards the place where it is necessary to exclude visual connection (between place in front of display and rest place on the sofa). The parameter influences the form openness/closeness of flower petals of triangular rhodonea , and the logic of realization is following: background is half transparent satin glass, that lets the light through thou blurs the image and increases the privacy of working zone, while rhodoneas are made of transparent glass.
The partition is supplemented with curtain that acts the same way having the same pattern and can be totally shifted. Mirror in studio contains a pattern of fractal parceled parametric rhodoneas that get totally opened to the human`s height level.

noMad project designed in AA DRL by Dmytro Aranchii, Paul Bart, Flavia Santos and Yuqiu Jiang during 16 month research 2013-2015. Work is based on modular robotic ideology and seeks for its appliance in architecture. noMad is the architectural behavioral assembly system that has attributes of autonomy, mobility, ability to communicate and make decisions. This research is not about one finite result but rather uncountable amount of variations, about approach how to create any space and adopt it to changing conditions without influence from outside and control by human.

Ukraine Pavilion Expo 2015 Milan

ukraine pavilion milan expo 2015

Project of Ukraine Pavilion at Milan Expo 2015. Recently Ukraine has been ignoring the question of a worthily representation of of the national pavilion at the World Expo, so our proposal is an attempt to break the trend and represent the state in terms of the openness of social and economic development, which is reflected in construction sensitivity (adaptivity) to the environment and visitors. Being open to changes and be transparent in its` implementation – is the slogan with which we support our vision, offering Ukraine Pavilion architecture, while emphasizing on the universality of exposition.

Pavilion prototype for the Milan World Expo 2015 is called to demonstrate benefits of modular construction, flexible computational design methods and the limitless possibilities of artificial stone.

World EXPO 2010 in Shanghai, where, in our opinion, Ukraine has not shown 20 million visitors a worthy attitude to the exhibition served as a background for the pavilion development. Prior to the proposal of a full scale pavilion the reduced prototype with an area of 15 m2 and volume of approximately 30 m3 was designed.

computational architecture - cellular automata aadrl

Computational / parametric architecture stays very close to contemporary theory of algorithms. We have already implemented cellular automata and particularly game of life in architectural project Fashion Design Museum in Kyiv, 2009. Current project designed within the Architectural Association (AADRL) was aimed to go deeply into cellular automata theory and practice and to define the strategies of control the self-organizing system and to find the directions of usage in architectural design. Implementation of the algorithm for space tessellated into truncated octahedrons instead of usual cubic voxels also became a contribution into cellular automata research.

AADRL material workshop [part of 2013-15 MArch course] was related to material tension/compression experimentations with lycra as an envelope and plaster as a filing substance resulting in natural minimal surfaces and volumes respectively. Specific agenda was directed towards volumetric modular structure creation, which hence had to be cast in one turn as a solid assembly.

Kyiv Passanger Train Depot Renovation. Parametric Architecture

kyiv pasazhyrskyi depot - renovation project

Parametric architecture makes understanding of complicated processes easier. Kyiv Passenger Train depot is a huge area that can and should be used today for the Kiev benefit. In addition to converting the space that is now used inefficiently, into the favorite leisure place for urban residents, the project pursues a second very important purpose – to connect Chokolivka and Polytechnic Institute neighborhoods that are now cut apart, belonging to the Shevchenkivskyi and Solomianskyi Kyiv districts. Pedestrian access will allow direct communication, while bike paths set arrangement will rise bicyclization of the capital on a new level, creating a strong local center of health and ecology.
