DAO Archviz is an office in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan consisting of Stanislav Tsoy and Catherine Amato. The small studio specialises in 3D rendering and brings every interior concept to life. Tsoy and Amato have five years of experience in the field of interior architecture and two years exclusively in visualisation technologies. Sand Sound is one of their projects in which a warm summer afternoon is translated into a unique interior.
The small studio from Asia transforms interior concepts into beautiful visualisations. With their project Sand Sound, DAO Archviz brings a warm summer afternoon at the beach to life. In order to release their creative energy, DAO Archviz decided to create a non-commercial project every month. Although they enjoy doing commercial work, those projects lack artistic freedom. The project Sand Sound is one of those projects in which they can put their own ideas.
The materiality of the space is meant to invite the visitor to touch things.
A Mediterranean atmosphere was their starting point. The interior reflects a hot summer afternoon when all you can do is go inside to find some coolness. Sand Sound uses mainly natural materials such as terracotta tiles and warm wooden accents. The interior is filled with wavy lines: the seats are rounded, the dining table is in a semi-circular niche, and so on. This is a reference to stones worn down by water. The materiality of the space is meant to invite the visitor to touch things.
The focus of the space is on the back clay wall where small incisions serve as shelves. These organic incisions possess great sculptural power. There is also a lot of design furniture in the space: among others Eny Lee Parker’s ‘Oo Lamp’, Secolo’s ‘Tateyama Sofa’, ‘Forestier Pendant Light’, the ‘Lob Low Table’ by Christopher Delcourt, and so on. Sand Sound is a magical project with soft colours and unique forms.
