Home Comfort Part 2: Family Comfort
This final year project is about the different types of home comfort one can experience.
This follows after Part 1: Discomfort.
Part 2: Family Comfort
Investigating in-between spaces and privacy.
Continuing from the house for the abuser and victim, the house will be taken over by a new creative family. A series of dialogues were conducted with a real-life family, to understand what home comfort mean to each individual, and to know about each person’s preferences on what they would like to have in “their space”. Based on their personal collages, individual spaces were conceptualised based on
their wants and needs. “Stay together but not together” was their overall idea of living together while seeking spaces to be alone. This brought to the main aim of investigating the in-between spaces between the individuals and family while giving them the comfort and privacy they desired.
Detailed designs were needed to investigate the spaces in-between the individual spaces. They helped to bridge the access points and circulation within the house. The detailed designs were inspired by several precedents, with references to the family’s original house and part 1 of the project. There were applications of ramps, brickwalls and decorative blocks. With many explorations on these detailed designs, came about preferred and suitable outcomes.
