DIGITAL PROJECT FOR A IT FAMILY
B.W.: “Just for kicks. You don’t have to answer it if you don’t want to. I mean, don’t dwell on the question, but I warn you there’s a trick in it: If six Chinamen get off a train at Las Vegas, and two of them are found floating face down in a goldfish bowl, and the only thing they can find to identify them are two telephone numbers – one, Plaza Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh, and the other, Columbus Oh-1492 – what time did the train get to Palm Springs?”
R.S: “Nine o’clock.” B.W.: “Now, would you mind telling me how you happened to get that? “
R.S: “Well, there are eleven letters in Palm Springs. You take away two Chinamen, that leaves nine.” B.W.: “You’re a sketch, Mr. Sumner.” R.S.:” You’re not so bad yourself.”
“This project is about you. Make no mistake, it is your future house, and more importantly, it’s about where you will live for next years. We gave shape to everything you ask us, and we struggled a lot to generate an algorithmic design where parameters weren’t only functional inputs but emotional ones. We built an attitude, a style, a philosophy that you pointed out and in which we believed. So this is the result without any compromises.”
“Desk Set” took into account a countless number of client’s requirements for what concern materials and functionality. The client is an IT professional, so we decided to elaborate on this setting a planning algorithm. Besides we’ve put emotional information extracted from the area survey’s (sun orientation, lighting, climate and local nature, neighbour buildings) to complete the process. The outcome is an intriguing project where the living day space overlooks the Adriatic sea’s panorama, while the night area is backward in a private area of the house.
