The driving design principles of the Brick Vault House respond to regionally available construction techniques – both traditional and contemporary – and the Spanish Mediterranean climate. It is organised around a structural grid system, which allowed us to resolve the typical construction details so that future houses could have different configurations, avoiding replication but still maintaining some level of standardisation. The character of the house is given by its structural materials –the green steel frame and exposed load-bearing brick vaults present throughout all spaces, and its irregular modular layout –creating numerous porches and terraces as well as varying views.

AND.G Concept Store by DAS Lab

Everyone is a part of the collective society and connects with the world, holding on his or her views. Conscious behaviors bring about the states of paralleling, opposition, merging and detachment, and immerse individuals into their internalized trajectories of movement.
