The premise of this project was to analyse a peer’s everyday ritual or routine and conceptualise it as an architectural gesture at 20 Wallace Street. My gesture was developed from the ritual of calling out in greeting to your flatmates as you arrive home from a hard day at work/school. The act of calling out was ultimately about feeling connected to your household, so my brief adhered to ideas of ‘connection’ and ‘comfort’.
The white arched hallway was the result of this exploration, conveying the form of a sound wave, a literal interpretation of the ritual. The hallway design also communicated the notion of connectedness as it serves as a connection between different rooms of the house.
