LiteHouse   / RED DEER    / UNITED KINGDOM, LONDON   / Архитектурный объект

Purpose:   The aim of the LiteHouses is to create new spaces in the heart Yaroslavl where inhabitants can enjoy new views of the city and offer an opportunity for users to withdraw from the hectic city life. Litehouses create a space for introspection and observation


Цель проекта «Маяк» заключается в создании новых пространств в центре Ярославля, где жители смогут наслаждаться новыми видами города, отстранившись от суеты городской жизни. «Маяк» формирует пространство для самоанализа и созерцания.

Первоначальная идея заключается в предоставлении раскрытия новых видов улицы Чайковского и ее окрестностей. Сложившиеся виды обрамлены аллеей деревьев, которая завершается памятником. Мы хотели бы переосмыслить эту рациональную планировку, создав пространства, в которых жители смогли бы уловить новые виды города из парка. Мы решили предложить подвешенные на дерево уютные «капcулы», которые не только украсят парк, появляясь из деревьев, как гигантские фонари, но и создают новые перспективы на окружающие здания и прохожих в парке.

«Маяки» подвешиваются на деревьях и остаются доступными в течение всего года, днем и ночью,  подчеркивая сезонные изменения парка и городской жизни вокруг него.

Concept of the project:

The original concept was to offer new views of Chaikovsky Street and the surrounding area. The existing views are framed by the trees along an axis which culminates at the monument.

We wanted to challenge this rational planning by designing spaces in which inhabitants could see new views of the city from Chaikovsky park. We decided to propose intimate ‘pods’ suspended up in the tree which would not only decorate the park, appearing out from the tress as giant lanterns, but also create elevated views of the surrounding buildings and passersby in the park.

The playful ‘Litehouses’ would be suspended from the trees and remain accessible throughout the year, day and night, highlighting the seasonal changes of the park and the city life around it.

Red deer is a workshop which draws on various disciplines to reanimate design. Inspired by craftsmanship + making, painting, film + digital processes, red deer critically engages with materials, detail and project briefs to introduce elements of playfulness, tactility and the unexpected to every project. Red deer is for a fusion of architecture, the arts and cool with due regard to function and the broader social and economic considerations of placemaking.

Lionel real de Azúa ARB (French, Uruguayan) :Lionel’s architectural career has largely been concerned with the profession’s complex relationship with the arts. A graduate of the university of edinburgh, his explorations on surrealism and architecture at oxford brookes university saw his project win the orginal field in architecture award as well as a nomination for the riba president’s silver medal candidacy.

Ciarán O’Brien ARB RIBA (Irish) : Graduating from the university of Edinburgh with first class honours before completing his masters, Ciarán O’Brien’s research in architecture has focused predominantly on how industry, craftsmanship and ‘the handmade’ can inform and stimulate the design process in this digital age. His hand drawings and photographs of revitalised industry have been exhibited in London, Edinburgh and Dublin and published in the RIBA RSUA journal and the New York Times Style magazine.

Lucas Che Tizard — ARB RIBA (English/Argentinian) : Lucas tizard graduated from the bartlett school of architecture in 2010 and has previously worked in various practices in Buenos Aires and London. Lucas’ interests lie in exploring the interactions of people with architecture through digital processes and investigating new relationships between man and the built environment through motion graphics, augmented reality and three-dimensional modeling.
