The Room Without Walls

Notice how with each situation below space finds a sanctuary between indoor and outdoor, intimate and infinite.

There's a tension between the oppositional forces of coverage and openness; Think of it as a sensual wrestling match between positive and negative space: More hot oil that WWF.

Stone offers a resolute border; the screen of a tree is slightly more ambiguous.

A tree's canopy and the hard white walls of the house, cushioned on its flank with shrubbery and a tree, create soft yet determined boundaries.

Above, the abrupt stone contrasts with the spatial fluidity of glass and an open slider. The wood in between provides a soft transition.

The perfect room welcomes you both in and out.
