Site Plan 002.jpg

This design was very much inspired by modern Japanese residential Architecture. Influenced by the likes of Architects Christopher Robertson, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Osamu Morishita, I have created this conceptual design to accommodate the various family dynamics that will occupy the space in a Papakainga setting.

The building features Japanese inspired translucent glass-plank facades, designed to 'glow like a firefly' at night + promote natural light, and maintain privacy from street views.
