For the first week of this new project, we have to imagine a space from the given painting of Pieter de Hooch.
The Messenger, Pieter de Hooch
We decided to base our main thread on corridors, as they convey an idea of movement. In a building, the distribution of rooms is made by the corridor, which gives a spatial organisation.

Drawing of the space
First Idea :
We imagined that the corridor linked a small room and a bigger one, which can be a reception room. Another hallway is grafted to the reception room.
Second Idea :
We deleted the small room in order to highlight the hallway, and added a rotunda to stop the monotony of rectangular rooms. It creates, in addition, a idea of movement.
Third Idea :
This time, we added a second floor, on the left side. Consequently, there is another corridor on the upper floor, which is open on the reception, that has a higher ceiling.
