Our entry into a private competition, ‘A Castle in the Sky’ was aimed at creating a scheme that was composed by the juxtaposition of old and new, light and dark, heaven and earth, open and closed. Focusing on creating a holistic architectural intervention, our proposed new additions touch the existing castle lightly, creating a beautiful and unique place suspended between Earth & Sky. A new façade offers each guest maximum control over their environment. With the turn of a wheel, two sheets of a bespoke perforated façade can be aligned, misaligned, opened or closed; an example of truly immersive architecture.
