[SMALL PROJECTS 2011 - BEST OF THE REST] Intervention in a university corridor providing an escape and isolation
The intervention is part of a masters architecture exhibition at Strathclyde University. The idea stems from finding places of escape and isolation amongst the bustle of everyday life.
The space is hidden behind a false partition which purposefully blends into the existing strcuture. The two-person space can only be accessed via a sloping tunnel. The concept is hightened by distorting the perception of distance between someone in the space and someone in the corridor.
The structure took just over two-weeks to construct from reclaimed timber.
