FLAT TIME HOUSE
2017 • London, UK • conceptual design
FLAT TIME HOUSE project was aimed at redesigning the backyard space of John Latham's late studio home located in Peckham, London. The brief included a proposal for the outside area - garden - as well as redesigning the existing backyard shed that could serve as a perfect space for a temporary rent to an artist.

The shape of the artist studio/house building was inspired by concrete cubes found on site during site visit. This shape was also incorporated in the outside construction of metal-framed cubes with a glass platform that can be used for sitting, laying down, etc. Those cubes created an outside public area
and a private interior for rent to an artist.

Initial maquete: Placing the new building on site.
Elevations of the new building proposal.
The design proposal needed to compromise two functions - public and private. Therefore, a two-level building where the ground floor is aimed for public events - performances, exhibitions, movies screenings - and where the first floor is an artist studio - both a living and a work space was designed.
This design proposal also includes an outside performances space -
- a patio - for events like small concerts, live performances taking place in the open air .
