Paper Cave

« Fusionner » comes from a French word meaning « to merge ». The architecture merge in the town just like renovations merge into inside space. Everything happens without imposing in the place. The most important thing is the inside of those places, the content with someone, or should we say, a group of people who will be actors of the activities that will take place in that space. To emphasise on those activities, the existence of architectural place or a place, which evolve smoothly, is necessary.

Paper cave
Being wrapped up in a soft white light. The moment you set a foot, the time slows down. There is a three-dimensional curved surface cave made by papers hanged side-by-side. The holes on the facade let the comforting light comes inside.

A table made of artificial marble, drawn by height variations form a free curved surface and seems to float. Thanks to the holes depth, we adjusted the light transmittance to five levels. Table stand also create a unique place by creating smooth curved surface.
It’s a place were people gather, discuss, it could be used as an office, a saloon, a meeting place, a lounge or a bar. The use of the place will depend on the people who will use it as far as it does not have a specific function.
