This project is the first introduction to the protostructure that will, later on, be used in House II. As the program was not imposed, we went for different exhibition spaces. 

How to design a space that would allow different forms of art to express themselves without being overwhelmed by the architecture was one of the key challenges throughout our design.

We wanted to accommodate various art forms, therefore, the project was designed with two layers. The central space with overhead light and the surrounding side of the project allowing a dimmer light coming through the Persian blinds.
