Underway Contracts has once again had the opportunity to work with Clifford Denn, 3D modelling and visualising the BO Concept, developed by Laurent Bourgnon and designed by Clifford Denn for O Yachts.
Far away from the usual definition of a catamaran, they came up with a solution for comfort and performance.
Our good friends at JUO have kindly allowed us to visualise one of their projects to help broaden our skills relating to exterior and interior architecture.
Situated on a narrow block is a playful arrangement of contrasting materials and forms in this two-storey residence. An organic timber clad structure in landscaped surrounds is the prelude to the floating concrete box of the main residence. Whilst the external form of this home manifests itself as this box framing the first floor volume, the internal arrangement of spaces creates two solid pavilions which are linked by glass.
All the details and information on this wonderful design and build can be found on JUO's website.

Clifford Denn Design is primarily involved in luxury yacht exterior styling and interior design, but also cruise ships, product, furniture and graphics. Clifford Denn had first contacted me in late 2010 but it wasn't until early 2012 that we decided to work together. Even though Clifford is situated in France the communication of ideas and designs was free flowing and the time difference turned out to be beneficial for the project. Clifford has done a fantastic design and with Underway Contracts experience in modelling, design and development, it has brought the project one step closer to fruition. We look forward to further collaborations with Clifford Denn Design on projects such as this.
