My design consists of separate living and sleeping spaces and for this model I focused on the sleeping area, making a sectional model that cuts through the central passageway, an adjoining bedroom and an external courtyard (as indicated in the plan). I made this model at a scale of 1:10 so as to explore the quality of the spaces created by the type and location of the materials I chose. Using Alvar Aalto's Town Hall at Saynatsalo as a precedent, I decided to use exposed brick wall in both internal and external spaces as well as a guide along the main passageway, to create the illusion of a unified indoor and outdoor experience within the entire space.
