Harwyn Multipurpose space by Harwyn

Home > Winners > #48096


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Harwyn

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multipurpose space

INSPIRATION:
The project was born by the desire to create a space that would bend to the need of the user while being luxurious and opulent, blending with nature. The initial motive came of necessity. With the birth of my first daughter, I required a quite place to continue working without leaving the house. The choice was to rent an office, or create a permanent structure that would be manufactured off site. And there the idea for the Harwyn Pod was born together with the birth of my first daughter.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Harwyn Pod is a premium permanent structure designed from the ground up with the ability to be easily relocated at any time. It is luxurious but homey with an aim to blend Architecture with nature.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Consciousness arises in the presence of the object it apprehends, likewise the optimal use for a Harwyn Pod arises in the presence of the Pod user. A drummer sees a Harwyn, they see the ultimate drum room that will provides the creative space to explore their art form. When a School Principal sees the Harwyn, it is apparent that the Pod will serve as the ultimate flexible meeting space the school has so desperately needs. The flow and interaction with a Harwyn Pod is always determined by a user.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The seed idea for the project was first conceived in December 2012. Prototype sketched in February 2013. Prototype production commenced June 2013. First installed for client July 2014 in Melbourne Australia.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
PIR panels are used for all walls, floor and roof. The PIR panels give the Harwyn a closed envelope to maximize insulation thus reducing the need for excessive heating and cooling. The combination of PIR and ACM cladding act as a double barrier against weather, solar radiation and noise. A steel base and portal combine with the PIR panels forming a rigid unit that suffers no twist or movement in transport.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Harwyn Pod: 2400mm W x 3320mm L x 2600mm H

TAGS:
Pod, office pod, music room, studio, creative space

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The decision to green-light this project was born in an instant. The justification to proceed is no different to the justification Miles David gave to pursue a life married to his art form or any creative artist uses to justify the path forwards. It is done because it needs to be done. The impact of the design can only be described by admirers and critics alike. It is to create from the forces beyond mind and let the work be out there to inspire more creation...

CHALLENGE:
The approach to the project required thinking outside the box. It was imperative that at a practical level, the project would be progressive while utilizing existing technologies. PIR panels supply structural integrity, thermal insulation and excellent acoustic properties. Alucobond brings limitless design possibilities with the aid of CNC technology. The clever use of minimal steel in the right places creates a box that suffers no twist or bend. The ability to assemble a Harwyn Pod from scratch in 4 days is an accomplishment we are proud of.
