Full of Texture / by Michelle Linden

Tjep has been getting some well deserved press for their interior design of the fabbrica restaurant... but there are many projects in their collection worth checking out. I'm always a fan of what goes on at the NAI, and this 2005 project is no exception.

The intent behind this design was to put the same attention to detail and craft to a home as you would to a piece of jewelry. Built from steel and glass at a 1:25 scale, the house incorporated the layering of four cut through systems including carpet, graffiti, bricks, wallpaper, and more. Its hard to take in the whole project, but interesting to see the designers attempt to create highly detailed and patterned systems with modern fabrication methods.
