All renders shown are simply speculative of what could become reality. I do not want to design something fully and have to live with that for the rest of my life. That’s a large ticket order. In Architecture school we learned that nothing is perfect. There’s always room for more tweaking and hard work.
I wish for this space to be a modular, adaptable, environment that is able to accommodate multiple purposes while being straight forward in it’s presence. Part of this intertwines with my personal affliction of being indecisive, something we all deal with in modern society today where choices are endless.
By allowing a single wall to be completely passive in design, this space can now be combined with outdoor elements or nature itself to be a fully immersive experience. I have yet to figure out how I will mount my 4′ x 8′ plywood panels to 2″ x 4″ steel studs. I was thinking drilling some large holes (1/4″-1/2″ diameter) in the plywood and attaching steel bolts along the steel studs so that you can simply lay the panels on. Ideally these bolts are threaded and have large nuts that one can easily screw on with their hands and no need for tools. I’ll probably have to invest in a nice tap and die set for longevity of these components. Here is the render that emphasizes the aesthetics of what this paneling mechanism may look like.
