Indigo Atelierwoning by Woonpioniers
Indigo Atelierwoning is a modern home built with timber, glass, and concrete, designed by Woonpioniers in Giethmen. The project has an ecological modular building concept which positioned between product and architecture, exploring how mass-customized ecological building could provide healthier homes for all of us while avoiding one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, it allows flexibility for dwellers and their context and lifestyle by inviting them to join the design process. Therefore, None of the Indigo is the same.
Lia’s Indigo is the result of a design process in which her wishes were clearly identified, leaving only the essentials. In between the trees, overlooking the landscape, Lia can dedicate herself to making her natural stone art. The work is done downstairs while relaxation prevails on the first floor. Surrounded by the curves of the structure, with a view of both sides, this space offers an almost spiritual experience.
Indigo exists of pre-fabricated, bio-based elements, which can be installed on location within one day. In these pre-fabricated elements, the curved connections between wall and roof are moment resistant. Besides these, no other structural walls are necessary, resulting in complete freedom for the interior layout. In Lia’s case, all facilities are organized in a central furniture piece, allowing both the living- and the working space to be next to the completely transparent façade. This provides plenty of daylight and a stunning unblocked view through the building.
