An instance of integration / by Matthew Trzebiatowski

The example exhibited here of visual and performance integration is in a space for yoga practice. There was a desire to incorporate the available sunlight while obstructing the direct view outside and to conceal all mechanical and technical elements that serve as potential distractions for the practitioners. The gently distended ceiling is held back from the wall, providing a reveal that contains the recessed air supply diffuser. Staggered fluorescent strips provide the evenly distributed reflected light that emerges from this slot.

White, translucent panels of extruded polycarbonate are positioned adjacent to the exterior windows and diffuse the natural daylight while preventing direct views into, or out of, the studio space. The connection of the panel to the floor provides a consistent, crisp line by which to terminate the flooring.
