  • HKA | Plugin Mutation

    PLUGIN MUTATION The Waffle is inspired by the structure of Water Wave and the wind flow. It wants to capture a moment of our natural environment. By this proposal, we have painted a special moment of our nature; we captured an energy flow, water dynamics. Water is life and wind to maintain it by its flow. ​ The main idea is to demonstrate to visitors how a single space can be transformed for several usages (to circulate, to stay, to relax, to sun protection, etc.). This is an ergonomic measure and a transformation that matters for people. The project is an object, a sculpture, an art and a powerful expression of architecture. The wooden waffle Structure uses a combination of CNC machinery and traditional woodworking techniques. The project is bending to be ephemeral and wood is easy recyclable, less expensive, flexible and malleable as material. ​ Wood offers derive of several products in the construction field. That is why plywood has been easily choose. ​ PROJECT INFO Type: Client: Team: Size: Location: Year: Status: Awards: Competition Roland Rom Colthoff Hermann Kamte N/A Toronto, Canada 2016 Proposal N/A PRESS & PUBLICATIONS

  • HKA | Native Skyscraper

    NATIVE SKYSCRAPER Design the city is a great complexity. This is a time when architecture is facing several challenges like sustainable and smart cities. Today, office buildings occupy a very high percentage of space after residential homes. They also need too much energy and then what will be the future of the planet. How the futuristic cities will look for? How to design them? ​ In 2050 we will be about 11 billion including 7 billion in the urban area. These people will make significant pressure on the town and resources. Skyscrapers will be smart, they will both respond to spatial, energy, environmental, ecological and bioclimatic demand. It will contain urban growth while reducing their ecological footprints. ​ The Cameroon is a first step test country. From tropical Africa with the second-largest forest wealth of the continent there are 300 species estimated at 22 million hectares. ​ Native Skyscraper is built with experimental wooden structure. It is inspired by elements of traditional (Africa) and biomimicry architecture. It has a dynamic shape and seems like a Baobab. Project emphasises benefits of wood. The design comes from the history of the site. Art, sculpture and local culture is symbolised by the ovoid and amorphous structures. This site is the old city core. Biomimicry inspiration is the ‘Baobab: Tree of Africa’ which want to imitate nature. By its unique look, there are only 9 species of baobab tree on the planet. As a symbol, Baobab is Africa. ​ Wood is the fingerprint of Mother Nature in our buildings, this fingerprint connects us to nature in our artificial environment. There are no two identical pieces of wood in this Earth and it is wonderful. ​ The structural feasibility and sustainability are based on usage of wood. The natural wood transformed in glulam beams is very resistant to fire and allows crossing very far-reaching. In addition, the flexibility of these materials enables us several options profiles for the beams and columns. The columns are made of wood; beams are made of steel and concrete. ​ The dynamic shape of our project allows great flexibility of spaces. Any specific areas of the project outside the core are unique in terms of aesthetics and comfort. All inflexible components are included in the core and the rest of space is a privileged user experience. The floors with the same function as Sky gardens show the nature and horizon in several visual and sensible plans. ​ Sky gardens allow a supplement indoor comfort space and contribute in social interaction between users. They also help to create a connection with the city. Sky garden give a new face to the historic Centre dominated by the cubical building. Green walls incorporated into the interior space improve the microclimate. ​ . Finally, sustainability also includes sensation of comfort and well-being by users. ​ PROJECT INFO Type: Client: Team: Size: Location: Year: Status: Awards: Competition ITAD 2015 Hermann Kamte N/A Yaounde, Cameroon 2015 Proposal N/A PRESS & PUBLICATIONS

  • HKA | Bicycle Studio

    BiCyCLE STUDIO project is located in Cameroon, in a peripherals cities of Yaounde: Mbalmayo. ​ Cameroon is a country of Tropical Africa (rich in natural resources including wood., It has the second largest forest reserve in Africa. With about 22 million hectares of forest, Cameroon counts 300 species of trees, ​ The project is inspired by the traditional bicycle. It is a model of reducing pollution: sustainable, efficient for our living space (Earth), favorable to environmental issues and energy transition. ​ Bicycle studio is a prototype, a model of design that puts forward the use of wood in construction. It must adapt to the climatic conditions of the tropics and be now financially within reach of all, if not the large number of people. So its lightness and adaptability makes it a solution perfectly applicable to the countries that have a large access to wood and accessible to others countries. ​ The main goals are: encourage the use of wood by people in construction; provide a sustainable, effective and simple solution by its implementation; propose a project that is both flexible and favorable for environmental and energy transition. ​ ​ PROJECT INFO Type: Client: Team: Size: Location: Year: Status: Awards: Research N/A Hermann Kamte N/A Mbalmayo, Cameroon 2012 Proposal N/A PRESS & PUBLICATIONS

  • HKA | Lego Lunch

    LEGO LUNCH Food is an energy resource for organisms. To procure well-being it must be safe and healthy for tasting and for consumption. Lego Lunch is designed with the intend to produce a good environment for people who want to eat or to take their daily meals during relax hours on the workday. By this opportunity to gather people, the aim is also to create a communal place in Siauliai. ​ With creative, sustainable and less expensive approach, the project is built by using recycled shipping containers (20 ft container, the must current). Conceive as modular and replicable structure, each module is independent and can be easily reproduced. Containers are the load-bearing structure with a light touch of the design. ​ Each module contains specific function allowing its flexibility, replication and maintenance if need. The restaurant is extensible in height, but before the roof is hosting a soft greenery. ​ The project creates a comfortable landmark for Siauliai community during the year. It also gives an interesting panoramic views on its neighbouring. Final Aesthetic is a mixture between warm, neutral and cold material, respectively, wood, glass and metal. ​ We benefit of this opportunity, of this energy, of these materials to leave a powerful legacy, a unique architecture in this beautiful community.

  • HKA | Pandora's Box

    PANDORA'S BOX “Pandora's Box” originally means to perform an action that may seem small or innocent, but turns have very damaging consequences and far-reaching. ​ This involves to take a big hit on the vision modes and design methods of logistics spaces. ​ The logistics centre must be a reflection of the ambition of the company. It is necessary to have a project that stands out for its uniqueness, singularity, flexibility and mixity of use, quality of the concept, design and energy efficiency. The project puts forward the use of passive energy. It takes advantage of the opportunities offered by the climate (cold temperate), terrain and vegetation to produce a great and convivial setting. ​ Pandora's Box is interested in the problem of the ideal space favourable to the development of intellectual activity Pandora's Box is divided into several themes so three: ​ Relationships between space, architecture and city: there must be a bridge between the architectural work and the city, taking into account the history. ​ Relations between man, space and environment: It is necessary to introduce the experience to visitors, users, because the workspace is where develops the creativity of workers. ​ Relationships between architectural work and health of the planet: A special emphasis is integrated into the project on sustainable development "act locally to influence the global world." ​ PROJECT INFO Type: Client: Team: Size: Location: Year: Status: Awards: Competition Ruukki Hermann Kamte N/A Oulu, Finland 2015 Proposal N/A PRESS & PUBLICATIONS Unbelievable Challenge Book ​
