This project explores the concept of a sanctuary by understanding the different senses that can be affected while experiencing one. With a site located in Chicago with very limited dimensions, this project values safety and spaces particularly for the individual. The patron feels protected and secure, and the materiality creates an atmosphere of relaxation. This sanctuary is a space for someone who needs to completely disconnect from the fast-paced and stressful urban setting.
