S27 selected to cross a spatial (gender) divide

News—————1 July 2014

S27 has been commissioned to design a temporary installation to span the space in the Ballard North Residence Hall’s atrium. The hall will be used as dormitory space for high school students attending the Model Secondary School for the Deaf while their new facility is under construction. The “Wooden Cloud” is meant to create a spatial separation between the floors for boys and the floors for girls, blocking direct visibility while allowing light and air through. The Cloud will be constructed this summer, alongside some much needed interior updates in the dormitory hall.
