La Maison Unal

Built-in Southern France between 1973 and 2008, the Unal house, made of sculpted white plaster "bubbles", was developed by Joël Unal according to his own vision of architecture. Its peculiar aesthetics and atmosphere are translated into La Maison Unal, a project aims to transcribe these volumes in a sensitive and speculative way. The letterforms are based on the contrast between the spaces of the Unal house and the geometrical harshness of my room, where I developed the project during the lockdown. The drawing method was consisted of the folded paper, generating designs that combined curves with straight lines so that it brings to reflect Unal’s attitude and spirit in typographic approach.

Unal is to transpose the physical presence and distinctive character of organic forms and calligraphy influenced typeface. In the text typefaces, I carefully considered to build own narrative by the characteristic serif and the contrast into junction as well as to create a harmonious, organic flow in the text.
