Space extension

This week’s progress

New spaces are crucial for individuals/occupants who expect a family expansion as time goes by. Underground extension is an opportunity to discover new spaces in Dungeness (while relocating burrowing animals).

The timeline of underground extension:1  2


To condense a large programme into this minimal footprint (within existing house perimeter):

This is a section cut-out model which shows the horizontal development of the underground.
I am going to try making a floor plan cut-out model showing the vertical (downward) development of the underground structure.

To do list:

  • Refine precedent studies.
  • Drawings that show human experiences in the new spaces.
  • Determine where the taken out shingles go, perhaps new construction / dune on ground? (nothing gets wasted)
  • Propose a technology that could reflect the interior texture of the underground space.
