Unconventional

Sheet 100

Sheet 20

THE UNCONVENTION HOME PROVES THAT CONVENTION IS DEFINED BY THOSE WHO DEFY IT. FLIPPING DWELLING AND SPATIAL NORMS ON THERE HEAD, LITERALLY, BY EXPLORING CORBUSIER’S FIVE POINTS OF ARCHITECTURE, VERTICAL ZONING AND THE FOCUS OF THE PRODUCT WITH IN THE HOME ON A ROOM TO ROOM BASIS. THE END DWELLING IS MINIMALIST AND SOPHISTICATED IN ITS DESIGN AND DEMONONSTRATES A MORE CONTEMPORARY WAY OF LIFE. THE FOCUS OF THE PRODUCT COMES FROM THE PERSONAS, PRODUCT DESIGNERS ADDING AN INTERIORS FLAIR ON MY PART, VERTICAL ZONING FROM THE SPACE ITSELF AND FROM CORBUSIER’S PHILOSOPHY.  I EXPLORED FOUR OF THE FIVE POINS OF ARCHITECTURE IN SOME WAY, FREEING THE FAÇADE, BY MAKING IT A SPATIAL EXPERIENCE OF ITS OWN, OPENING THE GROUND FLOOR AND FREEING IT FROM LOAD BARING WALLS, RIBBON WINDOWS ON THE WALLS FLOORS AND CEILING TO EMPHASISE LIGHT ON ALL FLOORS AND A ROOFTOP GARDEN AS A URBAN SANCTUARY. THE CONVENTIONAL IDEA OF HOME HAS BEEN FLIPPED ON ITS HEAD BY HAVING THE RESTING AND RELAXING AREAS I.E THE BEDROOM AND LIVING AREA BELOW GROUND LEVEL AND HAVING THE LIVING AND ‘WORKING’ AREAS I.E. KITCHEN AND DINING ABOVE GROUND LEVEL. THE GROUND FLOOR HAS BEEN COMPLETELY FREED FROM FUNCTION AND IS INSTEAD REGARDED AS AN EXPERIENCE INSIDE AND OUT, YOU ENTER THROUGH THE FAÇADE AND ARE GREETED BY THE TALL ATRIUM WHICH SOLELY HOUSES THE ENTRY TO ABOVE AND BELOW THROUGH THE STATEMENT STAIRCASE.
