It's 10 pm, I enter the room after a hard working day. The large step at the entrance and the small dimensions of the room give me the impression of entering a cave or a burrow. Exhausted I sit on the side bench to remove my shoes which I place under it. I also put my backpack on the bench with the few fruits that I picked during the day. Ready to sleep, I lay down on the floor, exhausted by this day. Around 7 am, The sun begins to spread its light in the gaps under the walls. I wake up in the most natural way ever. I take some new clothes in my backpack next to me and I sit on the side bench at the end of the room. In the sunrise light, I eat the fruits that I brought back last night.
8 am, it’s time to go.
My first experimental drawings quickly led my project to be a bedroom. These drawings allowed me to understand the possibilities of cohabitation between the four square planes and the protostructure. The latter is not only a structural element since its position in the project allows it to delimit areas inside the room. It can also be as a threshold or a bench depending on its position.
The first version of the room was unnecessarily large. The new drawings made it possible to find solutions to decrease the volume of the room while adding spatial qualities like privacy.
The dimensions of the planes are modified to have a maximum of intersections with the protostructure. The horizontal plane breaks down into two planes to create a difference in altitude between the inside and the outside of the room in order to reinforce the feeling of interiority.
