‘Buzz me up, Scotty!’
Designing An Intercom Station For The Meier Building On Rothschild Blv
Planning & 3D Simulation
When you think about it, intercoms are mostly ignored or just being taken for granted when it comes to designing an entire building.. and that's understandable. Eventually we're talking about one of those practical objects people use on a day to day basis. Having that said, its pretty peculiar that the first thing you see, and interact with when you arrive to a building has been left out and thrown to generic solutions. Ever heard of - 'God is in the details'?
For this project, an architecture firm hired the studio to vision and execute a slick modern design of an intercom post that would serve the residences and guests of the luxuries high rise building. The end product was to correspond with the skyscrapers' thin profile and to have the smallest footprint possible.
Planning a very thin profile intercom post was pretty tricky. Especially when considering the electronics, the flexing aspect and need for maintenance access capability. Even while having all these requirements in mind, we eventually created a design of a 40 mm thin profile post. The solution was achieved by combining a durable chassis and an underground foundation.
this project was a collaboration with Gerber Communications and Arch. Tammy Yaniv.
