Je Ahn talks about his inspiration and process behind '33' on Greenwich Peninsula.
Created by Studio Weave in collaboration with HATO and illustrator Jay Cover, ‘33’ is a three storey decorative folly, drawing sightlines through the central park towards the Victorian terraces, focusing on the discourse of ‘What home is’.
‘33’ references a mix of historical architectural styles in an abstract way: Edwardian, Victorian and Georgian. The structure is a delicate timber studwork, with the design featuring a galvanized steel, powder coated staircase in vibrant yellow. On the second level, the floor will be finished in epoxy paint stencilled graphics that symbolise the flat room settings within the ‘home’. ‘33’ will be in situ for 3 years.
