SOLO OFFICE

Experimental holiday architecture in the midst of the Catalan wilderness is what French real estate developer Christian Bourdais wanted from twelve architects he considers members of the international “New Garde”. Each house was to be different and would possibly question conventions. Now, the second object in the “Solo Houses” series has been completed: Belgian architects Kersten Geers and David Van Severen (Office KGDVS) designed a ring shaped building that blends with its surrounding landscape in an impressive way, becoming almost invisible. Located on a plateau with an ocean view, a house without back or front and with a protected atrium with a pool at its centre was constructed.

SOLO OFFICE – A HOLIDAY HOUSE WITH 360-DEGREE PANORAMA VIEW AND THONET FURNITURE

Thanks to the generous glass façade, views to the coast are possible. The 550 square meters are distributed into four open segments: a residence, a sleeping segment, a guesthouse and a pool house. In the dining area, the architects used a combination of black stained Thonet wooden chairs. Chair 107, for which designer Robert Stadler was inspired by the classic Vienna Coffee House Chair 214, together with this timeless design dating back to 1859 and the bentwood chair 209, forms a harmonious ensemble. All three designs are united by the combination of elegance, solidity and lightness – properties that the Solo Office by KGDVS typifies, as well.
