SCROLL DOWN FOR Select projects of Ceren Bingol Studio
DETROIT LAKES HOUSES, MN
Completed July 2017
The Moses Residence, two 85- year- old lake cabins in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, demonstrates design imagination where new possibilities can be shaped within the confines of the existing footprint and envelope of multi-generational homes.
The main organizing concept for both houses is to introduce an architectural parti which creates a threshold between the public and intimate faces of domestic living. This continuous armature gives visual clarity to various functions such as one-to-two story structural walls, stairs, a built-in desk, built-in cabinets, entryways and a kitchenette.
Previously having designed museums, Ceren Bingol Studio designed the Moses residences with the precision of details found in museum architecture: eliminating trims, designing fine European -inspired built-ins and creating clean, volumetric masses that eliminate clutter.
The formal and material expression of the design celebrates daylight and augments details and functionality with supplemental ambient and accent lighting.
The gut renovation upgraded the foundations, envelope, building systems and the architectural and furniture plans of the two houses within 8 months of combined design and build schedule.
