Abstract [en]

This project represents a continuous process, where the spaces of the home are being investigated and questioned. The ambition of the project is to analyse the image and the idea of the home, convinced that there is not an objective truth about how we are supposed to live within the home. The concept of the home is a social construction, where the nuclear family is the norm. The reality shows something different. How can we create spaces that are more flexible and generous in their use?

The process is an investigation of how architectural objects can generate a housing-typology that is more free and open for the residents to interpret. A vast area divided by architectural components creates a continuous embroidery of specific spatial situations, zones and compositions.

The aesthetics of everyday life arises against an abstract background.

Abstract [sv]

Projektet representerar en oavslutad arbetsprocess där hemmet och bostadens rum undersöks och ifrågasätts. Projektets ambition är att analysera och utvärdera idén om bostaden, med en övertygelse om att det inte finns någon objektiv sanning för hur vi ska leva.

Bostaden som vi ser den är en social konstruktion, där kärnfamiljen är normen för bostadens utformning. Verkligheten visar något annat. Hur kan vi skapa rum som är mer generella i sin användning?

Processen är en undersökning kring hur arkitektoniska objekt generar en bostads-typologi som är mer öppen för tolkning. En öppen yta definierad av arkitektoniska komponenter, skapar ett oavslutat broderi av specifika rumsliga situationer, zoner och kompositioner.

Det vardagliga livets estetik uppstår mot en abstrakt bakgrund.
