Office Val Saint Architects made this project based on a mixture of natural and renewable materials like wood and bamboo, and high technology hardware and canvas lining. More information and pictures below.
Using bamboo poles and metal joints, they form a framework that supports the five-story building. Each apartment is accessed via a central staircase. These bamboo poles are connected together with metal joints in “X” to generate the exoskeleton.
Circular platforms and floors to make you climb through a circular staircase that wraps around a central support element. A double helix with wooden blinds and glass curves up letting in light and allow ventilation of the enclosures. The rest of the structure is wrapped in a tarp to seal the interior.
The ground floor has a main entrance and contains a bathroom and the kitchen the next three floors are used as bedrooms. Finally, the upper floor to help distribute heat up and serve as extra living room.
The architects designed these specifically for vertical houses in Haiti Port au Prince, to help its reconstruction based on local materials like bamboo very resistant.
The design was inspired by the traditional woven baskets and natural fibers used local plants to shape a form of cocoon. This proposal is far from the vernacular architecture of Haiti, but conceptually it can be a good housing solution that creates an interesting set of homes in their summation.
