Exquisite Space is specific to the marine biome, which is found in all of Earth’s oceans. This project functions as a space in which a community composed of at least seven inhabitants could live and coexist. 

I took a whimsical approach to this project and designed a space for mermaids. Exquisite Space is an ‘island,’ beneath which a community of mermaids lives. The space is outfitted with small pods in which a mermaid could make their home. In three locations, ‘ladders’ provide the opportunity for a mermaid to swim up to holes in the land.
