LAVA is one of 19 architects presenting their ideas for homes of the future by the gallery as part of its annual Art + Architecture 11 show. LAVA has 2 projects: Home of the future and Future Hotel.
LAVA’s Home of the future is a showcase for future living with man, nature and technology in harmony.Home of the future will be built later this year on the rooftop of a new shopping mall in Beijing. An artificial sky dome will provide a year-round microclimate that opens up the home to a tropical garden filled with sun, light and fresh air, an oasis in the city.
The fluid design and organisational strategy based on the structure of cells is easily adapted to suit specific requirements. Visitors will experience 15 different living spaces, from internal/external bathroom zones, to kitchens flowing to veggie patches and outdoor decks, to sunken bedrooms with dream-inducing lighting.
