Hamish Shaw

Lounge den   2014

 

Architect Hamish Shaw has designed a radiant ceiling feature - a prototype for a house renovation - that creates an inviting reading area for the exhibition. The original project was based on the idea of enclosing a space to create an atmospheric environment that maintained a strong relationship to the outside. The spherical ceiling works to both illuminate and provide acoustic dampening. The curved detailing draws attention upward, the structural grid extrudes into the space like a sun pressing down from above. Shaw has provided a space that is illuminating, a constructed phenomena that engages the senses.
