The Home - in the reality of narrative atoms

University essay from Konstfack/Inredningsarkitektur & Möbeldesign


This research is investigating how one can use narrative tools in the field of interior architecture.

Its projects explore different approaches of communicating about and with interiors. Communications, imaginable in the form of conversations, which can take place between the interiors, the interior architects and the users.

It’s about learning from an existing space. A knowledge I think we should have before we start to change it. A knowledge that can lead to a deeper understanding and respect towards the interiors and their previous history.

It’s about expanding the interior architect’s toolbox with narrative tools. Tools we can use on our own but also in form of workshops, involving the users.

It’s about an additional type of understanding of interiors. An understanding that goes beyond the materials, colours, forms and objects it is composed of.

It’s about the stories and characters behind the interiors, the narratives.
