Designer: Tiam Maeiyat
My design upcycles the garage space into a new form of the family room.
The garage may be the last place in a house one might consider for gathering or entertainment, which is exactly why my design celebrates light and transparency and links the inside and outside of the garage. By doing so, there is new possibilities around quality family time, regardless of time or season.
Environmental considerations are at the core of my design, including:
• A green roof, which provides a rainwater buffer, purifies the air, reduces the ambient temperature, regulates the indoor temperature, and saves energy.
• Flexible solar panels, which powers and sustains the needs of the occupants.
• Semi-transparent photovoltaic glass, which makes the most of available daylight.
Volvo XC40 Recharge Inspiration
Inspiration and integration of the Volvo XC40 Recharge is interpreted through freedom and flexibility. I believe that freedom in form results in freedom in the way we live in the space. This freedom brings more opportunity, more attachments, and more sense of belonging.
