'Vex' house is a unique architecture/sound collaboration, where the music ‘Vexations’ by Erik Satie, an endless loop of notes, was the starting point for the collaboration between the architects Chance de Silva and the sound artist Scanner. The interior has a warm, cavelike feel, with window positions responding to Satie’s musical score. Shortlisted in the #NLAwards18 Homes category.
