a winter haven in the metaverse

 

taking inspiration from a frosty season in the metaverse, digital artist andrés reisinger and architect alba de la fuente design this so-called ‘winter house.’ the project takes shape as virtual dwelling with clear geometries and soothing colors. the duo envisions the space with an atmosphere of tranquility for the coldest seasons — a winter heaven in the metaverse — and a continuation of reisinger’s dream-like aesthetic.

the balanced design

 

andrés reisinger (see more here) and alba de la fuente (see more here) center the design of the winter house on balance. the building and its interior environment are seamlessly integrated with a cohesive, soothing language. the team notes that the house takes formal inspiration from the early 1960’s designs of dieter rams. the building is supported by a large concrete structure that emerges from the earth while the heavy, floating floor balances the light glass walls that flood the space with natural light.

 

with full height windows, nature becomes itself an integral part of the house. the residence’s contrasts and dualities are vital elements to create a distinctive habitat that revolves around intimacy and seclusion. each zone of the house is designed to seem open and immersed in the winter landscape while at the same time convey a sense of intimacy and warmth.

inside the virtual architecture

 

the interiors are defined by pink-toned pieces, some reisinger and some custom made, juxtaposed against natural materials such as concrete, glass, steel and subdued beige tones, a texture and color combination that offers varying degrees of warmth to each room. the carefully chosen materials represent the characteristic duality of the project and convey feelings of tranquillity in all spaces.

the vision of andrés reisinger and alba de la fuente

 

this is the second virtual house reisinger and de la fuente work together on. their creative and architectural visions find a harmony and collide in new ways of understanding and acknowledging spaces, marking new steps towards the digital migration of real estate. reisinger tells designboom: ‘we envisioned what the cold season could look like in the metaverse, gathered all the feelings of quietness, stillness and comfort we associate with winter with and translated them into a residential form.

 

breathing the frosty air that pauses the mind from clattering, sensing the crunch of the powdery snow; feeling snow-blind while following the shining marks on the ground; being guided by the soft sun while exiting the forest coated in snow; coming home, hearing the creaking fire and finding rest by it; observing the rose sunset, with stillness, from the poised interiors of winter house.
