a poetic passageway

But when there has to be a passage in an office or a house and when it is too small to be a building thoroughfare, it must be treated very specially, as if it were itself a room”  ..-  Christopher Alexander, A Pattern Language

A Passageway

Functionally, a passageway is meant to connect one space to another, where the architectural and design emphasis is typically placed on the destination connecting the two spaces.  The idea I had for the passageway was inspired by the Soane Museum in London, England by architect Sir John Soane.  It involved a conscious and understated selection of wall decor, paint and lighting creating a subtle moment between the foyer of the home and the library (the spaces being connected by the passageway).  This allowed the passageway to have just as much meaning as the rooms it served to connect.
