Artist’s in Residence

This project was developed by Reem Elwazeer as a student from American university of sharjah and was submited to the WAS awards 2017 under the Housing category.

This is an artist’s in residence project where we were assigned to design a residential house for an artist where he/she can have their own gallery in. The challenge of this project is that we have to integrate the private area ( the artist’s residential house) with the public are (the gallery). Also,  we were assigned to have a conceptual model of the space divisions. Since my main concept was the changing of materiality according to the functionality, my conceptual model consisted of blocks of wood that represents the areas associated with sitting, relaxing, sleeping or even displaying the art piece, while the other material which is Acrylic represents the circulation areas where the people walk.
