LIGHT & SOLITUDE

Critic: Maria Sieira | Arch 650 Integrated Housing Studio

As students, we were tasked to write intimate letters through the eyes of our selected personas that we have created to inhabit the space in SoHo , New York. My project focused on the life of a postulate entering a convent for the first time. Based on the persona's perspective and collective experiences, I have designed a space ideal for reflection and solitude with the focus on how the light enters through the light wells and the perforations in the building thus creating an intimate sanctuary within the centre of an energetic neighbourhood.
