    Week 1, 2, 3, 4 getting to the final project

    The instruction was to create a room with four plans (3m x 3m).

    I first had an idea that I developed and experimented through the drawings by moving and tilting plans.

    I created a room, a room made to relax and sunbath.

    Why would I create a room for these purposes while you can easily do it on the ground?

    For some comfort issues such as having a floor and walls where you can lean on it and also create a space that belongs to you, high in the protostructure, out of sight.

    The room’s entrance was located north-east, you had to walk next to a tall vertical wall to get in, which attracted your curiosity. Then you arrive to a bright open space (located south) where you can enjoy the sun and relax by sitting on the ground and leaning on the oblique wall. Another space, darker and more intimate, ideal to take a nap, emerges behind the oblique wall (located north), linked to the first one thanks to the poles of the proto.

     plan / elevations / perspective / axonometry (scale 1:10)


    Now that I gave to the room its function, I can refine it by taking in consideration discussions I had about the project.

    The issue I had was that I didn’t have enough space to move around. I had to expand the paths and move forward the protostructure and move back the vertical plan to enable someone to get to the open space.

    The secondary space was too tiny I needed to change the tilt of the oblique plan and expand the access.

    Through card board models and drawing I clarify those aspects and highlight the notion of inhabitation and the space for the body.

    After several discussions, I’ve given up the idea of a long path to get in the room and the idea of circulation between the poles and the vertical wall because they were reducing too much the open space and making it confusing.

    The entrance is now in the other side of the vertical wall, right behind the open space, giving the access to either this space or the darker one.

    The oblique plan now have a bench which is embedded in it for a better comfort.

    Furthermore, I had to consider structure elements and use more the protostructure. We also needed to collaborate with each other to find our final spot in the protostructure.

    I decided to remove the horizontal plane on top to replace it by a vertical wall (west side) that I share with a another project, next to the oblique wall to avoid the look of others and emphasizing intimacy.

    To avoid the appearance of a box, with the adjacent project, we played with the walls to create a dynamism by giving different size and moving up and down the walls, same for the floor that I moved back.

  • Chronology of a reading room

    Par Delortlaval Paul, 15/03/20

    Week 1 : Drawing researches, program for a room


    Defind a program: first findings



    Image Sun Mar 15 2020 11:28:00 GMT+0100 (heure normale d’Europe centrale)

    Vermeer, Girl reading a letter - 1657


    From a painting by Vermeer, I could find the main points we need to be able to read easily:

    - possibility to separate the reader from the outside

    - necessity to have enough light 

    Moreover, I decided to introduce an oblique plan, so the reader can lean against it. The goal is to read novels, it takes more time than a letter.

    the room is put in the up part of the protostructure to enhance the brightness.


    Then began the drawing researches :

    plan (1:10);  elevation (1:10) and perspective



    Week 2 : modify, condense informations

    To add more specificity to the space, a plan was made 1m10 high, in order to put books on it. moreover, you can have an intimate space when you sit, but you can have a conversation about your readings when you stand up.

    experimental model with cardboard (1:10)



    Then the plan that whas 1m10 high was put crossing the oblique plan, definding two spaces on each side, for two readers.

    Week 3&4: Concretisation and integration in the protostructure


    The plans her become concrete.

    The horizontal plan is made between horizontal wood beams of the protostructure. It is realised thanks to a template.

    the 1m10 high plan becomes a bookcase, both linking and separating the reading spaces.

    16:00

    I enter the room.

    I walk to the bookcase on my right

    I squat to choose a book in a row.

    I get up and browse it to check my choice.

    Then I turn around the bookcase and sit on the floor, leaned to the oblique plan.

    I don't see anymore the entrance of the room, I'm quiet.

    The light is behind, I can read without being disturbed by a direct lighting, but the brighness is still enough.

    I spend the afternoon there.

    During this time someone comes, takes a book and sits on the other side of the bookcase.

    Once finished, we stand up and exchange about what we have just read.

    We store the book.

    We leave the room together.

  • Flying Burrow

    Par Link Johan, 15/03/20



    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.





    Exploration

    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.

    Room improvements

    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.

    Structural improvements

    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.

  • UNE CHAMBRE A LEVER

    Par Douillet Arthur, 15/03/20


    Along the Rhône, contrasting with the river's horizontal flow, four planes rise up, interacting with the trees and protostructure's verticality.

    It's morning time. I just got out of bed leaving its horizontality, the space dynamic support me into this transition. A seventy-centimetres-high "bench" allows us to take our time during this moment.

    I sit down and take a fresh breath.

    First technical drawing to investigate and shape an interior around the program. The room must be defined by 4 geometricals planes.

    Precise the geometricals planes to build it.

    Only different by their location, they will diverge by their structure. From the ground where it's anchored, a monolithe plane support the others, support the body.

    Lighter planes frame the space.

    The floor is built through the monolithe and the two last walls follow its structure pattern.

    The dialogue between protostructure and "planes" wich began with lines, continue and materialize.

    Connection points are really intense and important moments in the project.

    The Vertical wall, elevated from the floor, frames and higlights the river flow. It lets in the reflects of the sun on water.

    Sitting, I take a fresh breath.
