Blending Spaces

For my house, I used a modular L aligned on a grid to create the overall design. The L is an important figure because it represents the corner of a space without finishing the box form. This relationship allowed me to create many blended spaces where programs and functions were also built into the thick, L-shaped walls. The overall project theme was focused on ritual, so I used my analysis and paraline drawings to show how the L-shaped walls help lead people throughout the different spaces.
