Casa Tumán
Puertecillo, Chile

Casa Tumán is a private villa in the central coastal region of Chile, designed and built by Amsterdam-based office Studio Selva with mostly locally sourced materials.

The villa is in fact a tailor-made surfer's holiday home, with a layout and materialization vaguely referring to chilean farmhouses. The small floorplan of 50 m² has been laid out in 6 modules: four bedrooms, one bathroom and one kitchen module. Each bedroom has an independent access to a generous roofed terrace, conceived as a shared common space; as a living room with a magnificent view of the sea. The post-and-beam wooden construction with strawbale infill walls and clay-plaster creates an excellent indoor climate in this humid region.

Westersingel Bridge
Rotterdam, NL

The shape of the new bridge follows the logical movement of the pedestrians that cross from the urban context of Kortenaerstraat over the water, and to the right or left in the informal and green surroundings of the Westersingel. The strict but at the same time organic shape gives the bridge a contemporary and romantic character that fits the atmosphere of the area. Its lightly bent shape lets maintenance boats pass underneath, while emphasizing the effort of crossing the bridge.

The railing consists of brass profiles. This choice of material refers to the bronze public artworks that are lining the Westersingel. The idea is to apply sustainable and honest materials in a contemporary manner, with a refined detailing. In this way the new bridge can be seen as a city ornament, strengthening the monumental heritage status of its surroundings.

Bus Box
Amsterdam, The Netherlands

In 2014, Studio Selva was asked to design a new façade for a chauffeur's break room next to Station Amsterdam Sloterdijk. The new façade has been executed completely in high-performance modified timber and simply hung onto the existing exterior wall which has been painted black. The rhythmical pattern of lamellae gives a monolithic character, while a custom-made semi-transparent shimmering coating makes the building contrast with the gray concrete structure of the railway above. Through its detached placement and minimalistic detailing the small building can be seen as a piece of furniture on the square.

Mirror House
Almere, The Netherlands

After De Realiteit and De Fantasie, the third edition of small experimental housing settlements in Almere has been launched under the title De Eenvoud. The brief of the competition called for an individual house with a strong relation to its surroundings. The twelve winning teams were given the possibility to realize their designs in an open area in the forest of Noorderplassen-West, but had to find the buyers of the houses themselves.

The Mirror House is a private villa with a facade consisting entirely of reflective glass, which acts as a camouflage and an obstruction of the view of its interior. The floorplan has been designed to be as compact as possible, with the possibility to adapt to different lifestyles. In dialogue with the client, the competition proposal was worked out to the smallest detail, taking a demand for optimum accessibility into consideration. The original concept with a slightly raised floor (for a better view), sliding doors, built-in cupboards and a single-level layout, has therefore been further refined. Long sightlines in the interior make the house appear larger from the inside, and anchor it to its surroundings. All interior walls are covered with a birch multiplex panel, whose warm appearance contrasts with the elegant and strict glass facade.

Jardins de Métis
Grand-Métis, Canada

The installation is an ambiguous intervention open to multiple interpretations that aims to leave the visitor in a state of mental suspension. This contextual installation invites the visitor to reflect upon our relation to nature within the field of garden architecture. Is nature something to cherish? To protect? To tame? To exploit? What if instead of designing the content we solely concentrated on designing the container?

Exhibition Orrefors Museum
Orrefors, Sweden

It was always a dream to design and build an exhibition in this stylish little museum hidden in the dense forests of southern Sweden. Our 20 metre long table displays four decades of portraits, artistic and commercial photography by John Selbing (photographer and designer at Orrefors glassworks 1932-73) as well as his unique minimalistic glass designs. The exhibition was initiated by Anders Selbing and curated with the help of Zhenia Sveshinsky. Open from the 28th of June until the 14th of August this summer.

Figurehead
Haarlem, The Netherlands

The new bridgewatcher's house is placed like a landmark on the raised intersection of Korte Veerstraat and the curve of De Spaarne. The buildings along the canal have been built in different historical periods, which means that the contextual approach to the site therefore has been a question of scale and detail, rather than style. By covering a banal shape with a shimmering, almost monolithic brass sheet paneling, the appearance balances between the straightforwardness of industrial buildings and a modern, abstract sculpture.

Studio Selva (formerly Johan Selbing Architecture) is a young architecture office with experience in projects of very different scales and program, from housing areas to urban furniture, bridges and villa’s. The office consists of the two partners, Alondra Paz Vargas and Johan Selbing. Their designs often deal with sustainability, material experiments, contextual analysis and involvement from conceptual stage to project completion.
