Monolitus Domum

“Monolitus Domum” sensitively focuses our attention on the fragility of our natural environment through a singular view to the sky.

Our succah is an investigation into the relationship between domestic life and public art. The design is a spatial sequence, breaking down and separating the elements of a succah into distinct spaces. The pure, square geometry is divided diagonally to create a courtyard and a tower. The courtyard defines the entry, providing an refuge from the surrounding public space. The tower houses the succah and telescope. The succah is a kaleidoscopic view of the botanical roof above, providing an intense multiplication of the natural element. The telescope is a deep framing of the sky, a contrasting, still moment of contemplation for the viewer.

Scale Architecture is a studio founded by Matt Chan and run with Georgie Forbes-Smith.

They are extremely conscious about respecting a site’s natural inclinations as well as designing all projects with an environmentally conscious approach.

Projects are rooted in ideas of domesticity, examining and experimenting with the blurred boundaries between inside and outside.
