A light slope ending on a space for contemplation of the outside

Tests and Evolution
Most accomplished idea of our room
scale : 1:20
The idea of a play of differents titled planes appears after the analysis of our two project PLANES.
Our intention is to create a floor for a room that would be open on the outside with a theatrical dimension.

1. RESEARCH BOARDS AND MONGE DRAWING
This is the research board about the slopes relating my facade and the other plasters. A specific diagram was created by organising into a hierarchy the ratio hight/distance and by selecting only the positiv slopes. the projection of this diagram on the facade creats specific diagonal "planes". I also worked on the dead angles from the original measuring point (seen in project measures) to find out witch parts of the original facade could be remodeled by the planes.
This is the second research board on the understanding of the 3 spaces of transition created by the diagonal planes and 4 different point of view of the passage who makes it impossible for the traveller to know whats comming next in his travel through spaces.

2. 1:66 EVOLVING PLASTER
storyboard of the evolution from the basic idea of the "planes" integrating the facade to the final result.
3. 1:33 PLASTERS WITH INTERVENTION OF PLANES
this is the first attempt to integrate the planes into the facade. This model in final scale helped me answer some constructive questions such as how could I insert the plaster in te MDF column and how would the planes hold on the facade. The visualisation of the spaces induced by the two planes was also easier.
4. INTEGRATED PLANES IN 1:66 COLUMN
5.FINAL PLASTER INTEGRATED IN THE COLUMN
The different transition spaces connecting the different levels of the facade enhanced through light.
different moments of the transition on the back of the plaster. the second threshold could be created thanks to the dead angle
"Our double-element is a door-bed wich creates a passage between differents worlds. We wanted to overcome the empty space between the back of our two facades. In this research, the climbing tent inspired us and brought us the idea of suspension and balance. The transcription of it was to fix a bed and play with balance and the rope's tension inside a "chemin de traverse". Two specifics levels and positions of the bed bring two differents ways to transit from a threshold to another."
Double Element 1:5
Our drawing research about the geometry and the concept:
Double Element 1:1
Drawings about the body in the space:
The notion of the door has been omitted and the framework took too much importance. We worked on the essential elements ( bed, threshold, mechanism, door,…)and finally we modulated our concept.
Our door has been transformed in two doors which permits the transition from two exterior worlds. The space between this two doors creates an imaginary interior.
There is a difference of 170 cm between the two thresholds of our moulds and the mechanism, made of ropes and counterweight, permits to recreate this conditions.
