keep up! no plenty talk...

CULT MERAKI's syndicate of project-spaces:

developing and inspiring locales+worlds,

using art, design and culture

At the heart the formerly glorious industrial area ,DAA , rejigged out of an old building.

 A new form out of the slants of conservation and preservation to present a space for conversation and silence; activity and rest; distraction and flow,  the space imbues an elemental play that strikes at boredom with versatility, and distraction with essence. 

Alternatively 'Crackzone',  DAA is a sphere were absurdity and practicality find each other; in material, form, and sensibility. The space will be activated by a collective of artists, designers and makers under the nebulous Cult Meraki as a place for artistic thrills, conversation, and deep living showcasing that creative praxis can be a critical tool for uplifting lifestyle. 

...creating void. Then a holding space...

[for Daa Laura, muse in character, work and service]

 

In revamping an old quarters from the 60's, walls marked "X"gave in – by a meticulous process of chipping through dense walls typical of construction in the 40's - 60’s. To stir various atmospheres, DAA carves a site for deep living, blending creativity, learning, and lifestyle.

 

Large doors swing into a terrace screened by breeze blocks. These lead to the side of the building towards the rear outdoor porch, or inside. Where the interior renders an open centre with a mezzanine, accessed by ladder or 'cat stairs': a sliver of concrete connecting the floors, ledges and counters. 

The main hall is composed in 3 collapsible zones: for living/activities, sleeping, and cleaning/utility (kitchen/ lab, storage and bathroom). Floor to beam window/doors line south and east facing facades, with high level windows on the other faces.

By transforming the layout, the space senses as a psyche in progress. The design plays on contrast, sequencing planes and plinths, solids and voids, straight or curved, flat or raised.
