House of Quarts is an architecture imagined as a crystallization of all lively energies. It shines, reflects and magnifies the worldly phenomenons, to channel their frequencies and to amplify. It is strong as well as porous and it acts as a skeletal base for all forms of life. The spaces are imagined as anti-gravitational to be free from modern typologies. The building is a mixed-use building with various unit configurations but essentially it does not distinguish life/work/play. The windows rotate 360 degrees, are conceived as the lens to view the surrounding environment as well as to reflect and observe our inner beings.
