The Upper Room in Washington, DC by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

April 9th, 2013 by Sanjay Gangal

Located in the upper room of an ambiguous row house along a typical street within the anonymous grid of a Washington DC neighborhood, the aspiration is a micro-expression of modern space and life as spectacle. The program takes a 650 square foot floor space and designs a master bedroom suite including bed area, closet, reading nook, and bathroom. To do this, all interior walls were removed to free this turn-of-the-century home’s compartmentalized space.

Wood and stone drape and fold along the horizontal and vertical surfaces. Within the folds rest two glass volumes; one containing the shower, and another containing the closet. The perimeter gypsum walls are carved away to form the bed headboard and perimeter light coves.

The ritual activities of everyday life are celebrated on platforms, by material qualities, and within the contours of the folds. In this newly defined private universe, dressing and showering become the active events casting silhouettes against translucent lit boxes. Conversely, the passive activities of sleeping, reading, and bathing occur calmly on plinths, finishing the rich dialogue.
