From Exterior to Interior: A Contextual Translation of Spatial Qualities

Abstract [en]

We rarely question the orthogonal logic of the ordering of rooms and division of space within buildings. That in itself is in a way reason to deviate. Not just for the sake of difference but for the sake of preventing or help filling an absence. As well as modern city planning has to face a potential problem with the absence experience in the case of contact with nature and greenery for people growing up in the wrong areas or under unfortunate conditions, so must we consider the possibility of the effect our built environment has on us. Or rather what the absence of alternatives does to our conception of space and in return how that possibly prevents us in our growth and perception.

The aim of this project is to take on the question of site contextual architecture with focus on the ordering and shaping of interior spaces. The project looks at exterior spatial qualities in shifting directionality and rhythm of space and movement recognized in a harbour area in Mariehamn, Åland. The intersecting and overlapping spaces, few if any thresholds between public and private, as well as materiality of the site have inspired a take on how interior space can be arranged differently to reflect some of the experienced qualities of the site.

Abstract [sv]

Vi ifrågasätter sällan den ortogonala logiken bakom hur vi organiserar rum i våra byggnader och interiöra miljöer. Det är nästan i sig ett skäl att avvika från detta. Inte bara för att vara annorlunda, men för att fylla ett tomrum. Liksom modern stadsplanering måste ta hänsyn till möjligheten att avsaknad av tillgång till natur och naturupplevelser för folk som växer upp under sämre omständigheter i stadsmiljöer så måste vi begrunda effekten av vår byggda miljö på oss. Hur påverkar avsaknaden av alternativ rumslig ordning vår utveckling och vår perception?

            Målet med detta projekt är att ta an frågan om platsspecifik arkitektur med fokus på organisationen av interiöra rum. Projektet behandlar exteriöra rumsliga kvalitéer i skiftande riktning, rumslig rytm och rörelseflöden i Sjökvarteren i Mariehamn, Åland. De överlappande, korsande rumsligheterna, små eller inga trösklar mellan offentligt och privat, liksom materialitet och struktur på plats har inspirerat ett alternativ till hur interiöra rum kan ordnas annorlunda för att reflektera några av de upplevda kvalitéerna på platsen.
