Space Between is a speculative housing development in Mount Cook, Wellington. A variable translucent skin of layered materials envelops a central utility core in each of the five volumes. Multiple viewpoints from across and within the units develop a sense of spatial depth and collective awareness. Shared spaces between encourage occupants to extend their sense of place beyond the boundaries of their units.
As a spatial designer, I have developed an interest in housing and how materiality can challenge the way occupants interact and experience space. I am looking to broaden my understanding of material applications, developing a tactile aesthetic which can be applied to a range of design briefs.
