A sketch showing the 'trunk' or bar section of the restaurant. International Masters of Interior Architectural Design (IMIAD) Semester Abroad in Stuttgart, Germany, at the Hochschule fur Technik
Through the IMIAD program I spent a semester in Stuttgart, Germany. In studio we focused on sound and space in design. My brief was to design a hospitality venue with three different sound spaces. I took inspiration from the tree house I had as a child, and divided a bar and restaurant establishment into three distinct atmospheres. The basement, or roots, housed the kitchens and toilets, the bar was on the ground floor amongst the trunk, and the restaurant was nestled up in the branches of the tree.
The physical model of the Tree House, showing the trunk' or bar space.
