Chez Garson

A homage to Archigram's suburban sets which examines the appropriation aesthetic of modern day, home making where image is deemed synonymous with lifestyle. A house within an ex-Baptist chapel indulges a mythical fantasy of rural sophistication via the insertion of a n interior barn yard facade which is juxtaposed with and collaged onto architypal modernist forms. The house is organised around two elements - the facade which separates the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen from the living areas, and the mezzanine which provides a space for the contemplation of the barn.
