What is a loom? It is a tool that produces textiles using threads in two directions; the vertical direction is stable, and the horizontal one goes up and down. What is our loom? It is a structural system that allows us to produce surfaces by weaving two different materials; the wooden planks for the stability of the system and the fabric stripes for the needed elasticity. The architectural interpretation of the loom provides us with a game with the space. A person, in order to get familiarized with a space, has to fulfill three basic needs; a place to sit, a place to lay, a place to eat. These basic functions, interwoven with a different degree of socialization-isolation, were the case study of the final product of our loom.
