The project was created as part of Hernan Diaz Alonso’s Spring 2012 XLAB studio at SCI-Arc, an exercise in form and generative artificial landscaping. Designed by students Keyla Hernandez and Jason Orbe-Smith, the Bundle House is a single family home located in Los Angeles, California. Reinterpreting the ground as a potential three-dimensional grid, the project develops through deformation and a series of disruption of this linear system. It stems from a flat site and transforms space into an organically shaped, semi-open living area. Enclosures and apertures are generated by the density of linework, offering both privacy and filtered views to the exterior landscape.
The previously flat site is transformed into the topography of different curvatures and reciprocal spatial influences. The formal language is one of biomimesis, translating the natural flow of organic structures into the language of articulated, habitable space.
”The landscaping becomes an artificialized nature that maintains its own characteristics while also relating to the geometry of the house.”
