• ROOMS - Week 3 & 4

    Par Melgar Luis, 16/03/20

    Throughout the 2 last weeks, I thought a lot about the concept and the purpose my room would serve. I wasn't convinced by the last one I made during week 2, so I came back to something similar to the first week.

    As I still wanted my project to explore the notion of movement, I decided to separate it into two spaces, each of them with their own purpose.

    The first one would be a long and busy space, connecting other surrounding projects.

    The second one, halfway through the first, is different : it's (physically) connected to the other, but with the opposite intention.

    It's a larger and quieter space for people who want to meet, discuss, eat, or even be there alone.


    The room I conceived offers rest, quietness and protection for those who seek it while passing by.  


    Here's a sketch to clarify :

    To accentuate the two major themes which are threshold and movement, I made small changes to the ground plane :

    - Threshold : I added a step between the two spaces, so the transition is better marked ;

    - Movement : I created a ramp on the east side, so the slope of the ground incites to move


    Here's an axonometric-like sketch :

    Concerning the materiality of the different planes, I made two decisions.

    First, the planes directly related to the interior space (the room) would be in wood : wooden planks for the ground and the walls. This involves the oblique plan, the interior part of the ground plan and the eastern vertical plan I made this choice because the wood is warmer and has a better acoustic, so it matches better with an interior, comfortable and quiet space. 

    Second, the plans related to the busy space had to be in plaster. This concerns the northern wall and the exterior part of the ground plan. I chose this material to differ from the wood and because it permitted me to have longer flat surfaces, accentuating the feeling of movement of the space because of its length and its narrowness.

    Concerning the positioning of my project, I decided to put it in the middle (literally) of the whole protostructure, because it was in the essence of it : being a transit space, between other projects.


    Here are some pictures I could take from my model (who was obviously incomplete) :


    (The yellow and blue plans are in wood, and the red one in plaster panels)

    I'm sorry for the bad quality of the pictures and the unfinished model. I hope the main idea of my project is understandable though.

    a hidden space from the outside, an open space from the inside

    to isolate myself from the city, people and noises, focus on the water and sunlight

    FINAL MODEL     1:10    (incomplete due to the sanitary quarantine)

    I wanted to create two different spaces in one "room". The first one is an enclosed space consist a vertical wall and inclined wall, both completely opaque. However the two walls aren’t in contact which allows a light to infiltrate threw the empty ligne.

    The second one is an opened space subdivided in two different part, an east side and a west side. The est part is designed to an inhabitant to enjoy the morning sun, in this area he can sit on the ledge while leaning against the vertical wall which has predefined backrests. The west side is like a copy of the east side but for the evening. It’s designed to enjoy the sunset and the evening light because the inhabitant can lean against the inclined wall which also has predefined backrests. Another difference with the east side is that he can have his legs straight on the ground when he’s sitting.

    Both sides are peaceful but they contrast in the fonction. The east side is made to wake up and the west side is made to lounge at the end of the day.

    Concerning the model, I decided to build it entirely out of wood to accentuate it's uniformity and it's lightness. The ground and one vertical wall are unfilled to contrast with the second vertical and the inclined walls. At the point where the inclined and vertical walls were supposed to meet, the light entrance is a precise moment created by two parallels.
