An Office for Lawyers
University of Bath (BSc (Hons))


Dehumanised by an obsessive desire for repetitivity, the office is used as a medium to investigate a method of design that could develop in an equally regularised fashion, a series of perceivably unique and different spaces. The project quickly becomes an unintended and highly specified series of steps that lead to the production of such a space, but most importantly progressively realises the strength in creating the perception of differentiation rather than forming actual physical differences.

The complexities of a courtroom are further emphasised by an awkward arrangement of its spaces creating a large-scale constraint upon which the office volumes can then organise themselves in unusual ways. Yet a constant tension between the two entities emanates throughout the proposal through the usual impossibility of bringing these two conflicting functions together, and so creating a further layer of intricacy.
