MUSIC BEYOND SOUND
alexa el khoury
Sensing the context, a rhythmic repetition of steps and landings creates a sense of musicality emerging from the staircase; parallel to that, the surrounding buildings with repeating balconies, windows and doors generate another rhythm. Analyzing the rhythm of those different elements, a new grid for the house is created, consisting of the overlap of different representations of those different rhythms together (the rhythm of the staircases and the rhythm of the house). With this grid, the house is re-designed in line with the concept of musicality and acoustics present in the site. The new vision changes the spatial experiences lived inside the house, the environment and the exterior context as a whole.
