    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    vPPR [tatiana VON PREUSSEN, catherine PEASE, jessica REYNOLDS]: vPPR’s proposed house for crucis cube, on a large cotswolds estate with its own stone quarry, is conceived as a cube of stone cut roughly from the ground, with facets chiselled out of it.  subtractive tooling is treated to both exterior and interior as a series of complex vaults and other elements.  the cube is played out at multiple scales – in the site plan, house, rooms and stone blocks, quarried from the site itself.

    by rigorously implementing the logic of the cube at each scale, the building takes on a firm and dramatic presence in the landscape.  the clarity of the cube concept enables variation and flexibility within the system.  using a 5.5m cube as a primary building unit, we have defined six types of rooms derived from the programmatic requirements of the brief.  together these identically dimensioned volumes form the components of the house.
