Atelier Tekuto’s Poetic House Experiments

Architectural home designs rarely push the boundaries of actual living: they often boil down to 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.  Atelier Tekuto is not only pushing these boundaries.  The office seems to live in a world where the boundaries simply do not exist.

The project names themselves are poetic, because in English they seem utterly unconnected to architectural design which of course makes them fabulous:

  • Reflections of Mineral
  • White Ladybird
  • Parabola
  • Skin TV
  • Lucky Drops
  • Silver Fox

My favorites are Reflections of Mineral, with its mind-bending tiny spatial arrangement, and Skin-House Project Number 5, with its trippy grid windows alternating between room-lining shelving cubes (called “cell brick”).
