Leala Laprise. Living Room. January 09th , 2018.
Tall umbrella trees were the inspiration behind this home renovation in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Fabian Tan Architect was asked to turn a traditional pitched roof home into a striking modern home. While the upstairs renovation was minimal, the transformation on the ground floor was quite dramatic.
Green walls and roofs are growing (no pun intended) more popular every day in both private home designs and public design projects, but one interior designer has taken the idea to the next level, bringing to life interior wall surfaces with real greenery.
The process is remarkably easy, though not without danger – fill a balloon with water, dip it up to the water level in melted wax and repeat. Go above the waterline and it might just pop. After a few times down and back, the exterior surface should be sufficiently waxed to form a rounded solid candle-worthy shape that can hold a small votive or tea light. After a few iterations, the resulting (cooled) candles should be tipped over and drained – and the water balloon remnants discarded. And to keep it level: setting the bottom on a solid surface during the process and the top after the balloon is removed should do the trick. For more science-minded types or slight thrill-seekers, these candles might make for a more festive holiday craft project than most. Full instructions at CandleTech.
In some of their example settings the furniture is largely designed to blend with existing design elements and color schemes. In other cases the new furniture is intended to stand out brightly from the current design scheme and make a bold set of statements.
In numeric order (per the above diagrams) the space(s) include such features as a seating element, writing desk element, infoscreen/television, exterior skin with photovoltaic cells, motorized sun shade louvers, wind turbine, generator and battery packs, wardrobe, entry hatch, shower area, water collection and filtration tanks, cooktop, sink [and] toilet compartment.” Project by adNAU.
