The space bearing the name 'serre' or conservatory, was translated into a garden room by using elements of original 18th Century greeneries as an inspiration — the patterns used for the textile backdrops derived from the constructions of the originals. The rigid steel construction, combined with weightlessness of glass, was the inspiration for the lines of the wool and the translucent mash.

Concept

Since the space has multiple functions, both rentable for meetings as well as for weddings, the design contains three adjustable backdrops. This modular system allows the back walls to be bare or to divide the space in two without fully removing the elements and therefore keeping their acoustic quality.

MAking

Because of my great love for traditional craft, all textiles for this project were handmade with care. The intensive process of sewing, transferring the image on the fabric, dry felting, harnessing, damping and cleaning, makes it an authentic piece of custom-made design.
