Aquaporin is a minimal space located in Kongens Lyngby, Denmark, designed by Norm Architects. Norm’s philosophy is to find the simplest form for a given task without forgetting the beauty of the shape and the details, and to reach a point where there is nothing to add and nothing to take away that can make the result better.
Their latest project is a collaboration with Aquaporin, a global cleantech company dedicated to revolutionizing water purification through the use of industrial biotechnological techniques and thinking. The interior reflects this transition of old-to-new by incorporating both clean and rough aesthetics within the space.
The contrasting elements bring out details that would have otherwise been missed. This laboratory space is all about voids and purity – vast areas contrasted by grand and minimalistic structures which revive this old warehouse. A wide, black staircase creates access between the levels while also creating an area to lounge.
