“The POD” Pavilion by Hijjas Kasturi & Studio Nicoletti

Published Oct 11, 2011

Brilliant project for PJCC Development’s Site Office and Sales Gallery, affectionately known as “The Pod”. The design is a collaboration between Hijjas Kasturi (Malaysia) & Studio Nicoletti (Italy).

Here’s some information about the pavilion:

“Water droplets in nature were the inspiration for ‘The POD’ pavilion structure creating a dynamic spherical form resulting in a primitive building archetype with a modern twist. The round and soft shape of The Pod is formed as a series of elliptical sections of variable widths and heights. Slithers of windows bring natural daylight into the spaces below.

Internally the pavilion is divided into two parts: one zone is dedicated to the corporate office area and the other contains the main showroom & sales gallery. The building appears to be sliced diagonally into a series of ribbons which wrap up and over the building creating a dynamic space within, forming a layered protective shell.

The structure is fabricated from tubular steel members with the exterior skin made of spectrally reflective aluminium panels. The exterior skin colour shades changes depending on the reflection of the sun, dynamically.

The Pod is surrounded by greenery with a reflective water pool wrapping around the edges that will contribute to the Bioclimatic behaviour and wellness of its inhabitants. Completed in Jan 2011, officiated in March 2011.”

Special thanks to Andrea Dennis for providing us with images and information about the project.
