The house is a Theatre … the ‘play’ is between
Occupant Vs Intruder
A power play of intimacy and control
T H E H O U S E IS THE TOOL
The Theatre Box is an isolated section of the standard row house. The private spaces of the occupant exist beyond this chamber. The intruder is shut out of the private spaces and held within the passages of the Theatre Box.
The space is deconstructed into a sequence of architectural elements. Doors, thresholds, stairs and windows are obscured slightly and the psychology of these elements is exploited for maximum tension
The space is written and narrated.
