Cube House

October - December 2015

2 month project from designing the three planes with chipboard to using the band-saw to shape the basswood model.

 

To create a cube house space for a college president within a site full of hedges that reflects her daily rituals.

Focus on making spatial relationships and considering the circulation path that follows a narrative. Themes such as private and public spaces, human scale and overlapping geometry were used within the design.
