Project details First Phase of New Town in Papua New Guinea

Emerald City PH 1A

Emerald City Phase 1A

The approach to efficient housing design will be through the innovative use of common materials, simplification of systems and assemblies, and alignment of design with typical construction sequencing. Our approach to durability will be through the use of well-aging materials that develop patinas rather than incur traditional maintenance costs.We shall strive to design passive rather then active systems and create harmonious spaces that hold enduring architectural beauty. Aesthetically, our approach will be to design diverse and flexible public and private spaces where people are comfortable and integrated with their surroundings.

The project is to be a model of an integrated design process, seeking to capitalize on the inherent qualities of the site, environment, and program. The approach to efficient development shall be through the innovative use of common materials, simplification of systems and assemblies, and alignment of design with typical construction sequencing. Our approach to durability shall be through the use of well-aging materials that develop patinas rather than incur traditional maintenance costs. We shall strive to design passive rather then active systems and create harmonious spaces that hold enduring architectural beauty. Aesthetically, our approach shall be to design diverse and flexible public and private spaces where people are comfortable and integrated with their surroundings. The interior design should achieve long years of durability and allow for a flexible and economic approach to redecoration to provide for regular changes in fashion and/or décor scheme.
