Summary

Two weeks exploratory research in​​to commercial, economic, and communicative aspects in relation to architecture, resulted in an innovative, interactive design for a shop. Com-mun is not only a shop. It is a centre of communication, where interaction takes place in a variety of ways.

The (predetermined) space creates a gradient from the collective to the individual. The intimacy of communication increases constantly: from an internet room / telephone store, to a bar, to an individual seating which can be set-up to your own wishes.
