“In the beginning were the trees. Or maybe the grass. Or the sun drawing shadows on the ground. Or the bamboos rustling and the water droplets falling slowly amidst the faint smell of soil in the air. In the beginning was not an architecture.”
The bible-like quote is one philosophy that Studio Tonton holds utmost. And there’s none other than the philosophy that best represent Studio Tonton Exhibition, currently running in Dia.Lo.Gue Artspace.
Focusing on futuristic, airy, exposed and all-white architecture, tranquility is definitely the prominent experience patrons had after going through a glimpse of Studio Tonton’s works in the exhibition. It’s even better, Studio Tonton’s principle work (i.e. the studio itself) is getting visually translated into a book with the help of famed photographer Davy Linggar and Fernando Gomulya, and writer Avianti Armand, allowing us bringing the whole experience to home.
Experience is something that Antony Liu and Ferry Ridwan, founder and principle architect of the studio, treasure the most. Upon working on a project, they focus on creating an exquisite experience of the space for the soon-to-be inhabitants of the establishment. That’s why nature plays a strong part in the building process, in order to further reinforce the participation of humans’ five senses and emotions.
In the end, experience does matter to make one feels at home. And that’s where Studio Tonton ace most architects alike.
