Endless Possibilities


Sophie Hartmann

First I documented the staircase that I pass every day when l Ieave my home. The same I did with a staircase in Sandleiten. Both drawings are a kind of composition of several fragments which record movement and perception merged into one continuous flow of space.

By analyzing Villa Katsura I observed different possibilities of how to approach the building as well as a great variety of openings and entrance conditions created by the multi-layered moveable facade elements. In my design project I also wanted to offer different possibilities of how to access a building and move through a space. The living spaces are connected by a series of doors which open one space when closing another. There is not one sequence or order, but many ways one can experience.
