Architectural Design

Project Description

This project challenges the idea of a study as a mere space for contemplation and appreciation. Designed for an architect, the environment becomes the literal materialization of the subject of his study – the phenomenon of perspective. The overall form adopts the image of the perfect cube. Each façade is further deconstructed into a nine square grid. While most of the openings in the grid are capped, some opening are void revealing clues of the interior organization. The interior space emerges from the linear connection between the openings of the different elevations. The inhabitable space becomes a series of corridors that establish visual connections out of the different sides of the building. The experience is disorienting and ambiguous, challenging the user’s preconceived notions of space within a simple cube.
