A research project that Michele De Lucchi led AMDL CIRCLE has embarked upon, aims to add humanistic value to technological progress with a consciousness towards natural environment and social habitat. This architectural research project focuses on developing solutions for 10 aspects of individual and collective life, keeping in mind the concepts of home, public spaces, transport, health, hospitality, and even workspaces of the future. The Atelier Station and the Sweet Suite station are part of this larger research.

The Atelier station is designed to be a creative retreat while the Sweet Suite station is designed to be enjoyed as an experiential hospitality spot. These structures have been designed to be modular to encourage a sense of freedom in their use. The stations can be placed easily within a surrounding and executed as a space for creativity and relaxation.

The Atelier Station, designed as a creative retreat, is a research idea that explores the system of prefabricated structures for the purpose of short-stay residential studio. The idea for the station is for guests to have this space as a getaway corner where they can come and rest, think, and create. The space is a compact self-sufficient structure but it can also be grouped together to create settlements and communities that engage with the natural settings around them. This station includes ‘Windowscape’ architecture for connecting the indoors and outdoors of the station, Timber Construction technology to maximise transportability while ensuring speed and ease for assembling the structure. The use of Timber Construction technology also makes the station recyclable.

The study for the Sweet Suite station looks at the challenges that the hospitality industry has faced during the pandemic, trying to create innovative designs that allow people to get away from the mundaneness of their homes and work places. This station aims to be a regenerative and nature-connecting experience for those staying. It will perform as a self-standing guest room where the guests can reconnect with their natural surrounding and control what facilities and people they’re interacting with. This station also uses ‘Windowscape’ architecture and Advanced Modular Construction technology which gives it scalable dimensions and the same speed and ease of assembly as with the Atelier Station.
