Exploration and first meet.
I choose 2pm03 for the hour since it is an interlude time during the day, when an introversion moment is needed. You may want to clarify your mind and writing is perfect to do so.
There it is, a room to write.
Great. Yet, what does someone need to write?
I believe that intimacy is a keystone in writing but a space dedicated to it has to be at the same time open. This balance allows the blossoming of concentration and creativity simultaneously.
Thus I work on a simple shelter, guided by a light-shaft. I let people be free on their position to write, whether sat, laid or even stood.
Now that I have my purpose, I have to shape it. The entrance from beneath is jettisoned for the sake of simplicity.
I have to focus on the main articulations: the terrace and the shelter, both writing places, one under the zenith, the other embraced by shadows. These spaces have to be linked. The horizontal plane is turned to emphasize the transition between the two spaces. A second light-shaft occurs. The oblique plane is moved in the shelter, still offering a seat on the terrace and now giving one in the shelter.
It has to stand, in symbiosis with the protostructure.
The columns are a leitmotiv, there are present in both the terrace and the shelter, characterizing them and giving sticking point to the room.
The beams are conspicuous on the floor, highlighting the link between the two parts of the room.
The two oblique planes are defined by a structural pattern which densifies itself where there is more weight, where people are likely to sit, giving shade and intimacy in sync.

With the model, new considerations have arisen.
The vertical oblique plane is going to be screwed on the beams, which likewise will be screwed on the columns and on the beams of the protostructure. This plane also plays the role of a diagonale among a cell, strengthening it.
Also, three lines are left empty on the floor, in order to display the anchoring and underline the link between the two spaces. The line at the foot of the shelter's entrance is not empty to not create the reverse effect: a separation.
