Part artist’s retreat, part skate bowl, part recording studio, and part playground, SINBIN is a private residence that creates an interactive environment bringing together landscape and architecture in an unexpected play of form and color, interior and exterior. The building and landscape program was developed to create a collaborative home environment for skaters, artists, musicians, and designers to play together on projects and products that intersect their respective disciplines. Designed as a private residence with flexible open space for small and large group events, the landscape design is organized around an organic thread that links the differing rooms together into a fluid design, breaking down barriers and merging disciplines into an episodic series of spaces.
