The “Spaceship” has landed and the dust, it appears, is starting to settle

The project, which recently broke ground in Palo Alto, California, “celebrates the creative process of invention” through its sweeping metal curves, which represent the highs and lows of exploratory research and development. The tall, two-story curves “rise to represent the crescendo of the creative spark and pragmatic analysis of ideas, and descend to transition into long, horizontal bands symbolizing the implementation phase of invention.”

The architect has outlined the perimeter that defines this type of houses and, from this new line, has created a project that is developed through two types of structures.

The house has a thermal insulation based on rock wool, which, together with the rest of the materials used, optimizes energy savings. Also, the lighting system is controlled to take full advantage of natural light.

    When we approached Oriel to design our new workshops he proved to be enthusiastic; making sure we got exactly what we needed and made the most of the space available to us. He worked to our timescales and we found them helpful at all times. We would recommend them to anyone wanting an architect!
