The rooms can be connected in a variety of ways. Thus various spatial situations and expansions are generated. Those transitions between the individual cubes are formulated to create switchable zones that can be allocated to one or other cube depending on the users’ requirements. Such flexible use is supported by multifunctional furniture.
Rather than creating a new modern and untested design, our innovation comes in the form of refining the old and tried forms of construction. Due to the short construction phase in Versailles, the prototype must be buildable within ten days. Two of the rooms will be complete modules to transport, and therefore erectable in any weather. The third room will be erected in the first fair weather situation as it will be transported in a separated state.
Switzerland offers a wide variety of wooden materials and has a rich tradition in woodworking and craft. The prototype differentiated qualities and products. Through natural treatments and the separation of the various elements we ensure that normal wear can easily be maintained, and when necessary, replaced.
Materialization in the interior
In the dramaturgy of the tour the visitors will be shown that the three spaces are to be understood separately from each other. In order to differentiate the three rooms, different materials and colors are used, as appropriate for the different uses proposed for each living quarter. Everyone gets a room with its own identity. The prototype is an example from a multi-story residential building, and portraying this is an important aspect of the project.
