Dubbeldam Design Architects: 411 Offset: A Room at the Gladstone Hotel, Toronto
Collaborating with Tania Ursomarzo, Heather Dubbeldam has created an installation that takes the form of two wrapping architectural expressions, which formalize the elements of a hotel room. Skeletal timber fins echo the structural framework of the room and create a vertical plane wrapping around the space, supporting the bed, side tables and desk. Another plane wraps horizontally around the walls replacing a solid portion of the window wall with a continuous strip of light. Combined, these two wraps form a ‘room within a room’ floating within the existing Victorian shell.
