The inspiration

Chris Hurst, Daniel Caven, Brent Watanabe and Miguel Alvarez told The Memo that Curve Appeal had been inspired by the new possibilities 3D-printing brings.

“The curved shapes of the free form walls are impossible to create using conventional construction methods,” said the team.

At one side the building’s round exterior shell swells out and around over a garage-like shelter, while the opposite facade is offers a vast glass window, with canopy that protrudes slightly over an outdoor terrace (perfect for barbecues).

Inside the home, ceiling supports flow organically to the floor, creating cell-like divisions within the large and airy space.

“Not only are the interior spaces well planned for the practicalities and nuances of life; the use of warm materials, brightly day lit interiors and the strong connection to the outdoors make for a comfortable and enjoyable place to dwell,” said WATG.
