entrées

Entrée A-E is a series of wall designs created for the five entrances of an apartment block in Leidschendam. The aim of this project was to evoke in the residents a new appreciation for their surroundings and the neighbourhood at large.

 

For each entrance I constructed a separate small-scale model, consisting of photographs taken within the houses of more than hundred residents, as well as different colored balloons. The color of each balloon matched the color of the already existing post-boxes.

 

The photos are depictions of five different household objects that I saw as essential to making a house a home: a plant, a chair, a mirror, a curtain, and a lamp. Enlarged photographs of these playful models welcomed all entering the building.
