indulge your inner voyeur

brief. / completed with the GrizForm Design team over the course of a week, this proposal is for a boutique guest room which explores themes of classic cinema, indulgence, and voyeurism with the goal of creating a space for more than just a quiet stay

date. / Winter 2012

location. / Temporary Installation

description. /

This proposal is for a full-service guest room surrounded by a level of mystery and intrigue, allowing it to be a destination for experience, not simply a place to spend a quiet night away.  It is a room for the after party; for its guests to explore, expose, and experience their desires.  The room’s major design element runs the length of the wall separating the room from the hallway; it is composed of a series of translucent windows, each covered by a wooden panel suspended by an industrial weight and pulley system, allowing the room’s inhabitants to control the aperture.  Light from each space shines through these windows, casting shadows in each direction, exposing shadowy renditions of the activities taking place on either side.  The overall aesthetic is simple but glamorous, contemporary with hints of industrial, delicate without becoming overtly feminine.  It is a space of subtle indulgence, where the guests largely define the aesthetic through inhabitation.
