Devoid Sensation House

S+ ARCHITECTURE receives Highly Commended Award at RIBAJ Multi-Generational Living Awards 2017 with a ceremony in London.

The jury praised the scheme as: ‘One of the best presented entries, S+ Architecture’s Devoid Sensation House, is a modular pavilion. … this is a flexible space that can not only be used for many different purposes as a family grows and contracts, but can also be erected in different locations. The additions are constructed from a kit of parts CNC’d from Sterling OSB, which could be mass manufactured. These structural OSB elements are assembled to create elegant C-shaped modules that are enclosed by glazing. Combining them can create pavilions of different lengths depending on the required use – in its smallest guise two units are connected to form a 22 sqm addition. Internally, movable built-in furniture allows the space to be easily transformed into many arrangements according to the unit’s required function’. 

One of the jury members commented: ‘The strong form is a playful response to the brief, dynamic in both character and user interaction.’
