Massive Infra-Structural Furniture

Project Description

The House, conceived of as a volume, utilizes the extend of its small cubage with multi-functional floors, walls, stairs, shelves, seats, and cabinets.  The proposal reimagines these defined entities as 'cabinet-floor', 'seat-shelf', or 'stair-nook' creating dynamic Loosian volumetric adjacencies which maximize the small space.  The sensation of occupation is retrospectively likened to a coral with moments of exposure, flowing movement through three dimensional space, and private sheltering within the poche-like thickness of the furniture.  An adaptable shingle skin wraps the volume with variable apertures and bulges to mediate the interior programmatic order with exterior program and environment while several defiant furniture pieces escape to to the porch and yard.
