Defying the building regs and all reason

Standard

Ceiling

This upper room (suitable for Guild Committee meetings in private), has multiple areas of activity that need more definition whilst hopefully gaining a feel of working together.  The solution I’ve hit upon is a little weird, but with a following wind it might just pan out.

So far we have a set of beams and a ceiling/floor – it’s all a strange shape.  What do you think?

Drama of the Committee Room space
The lighting won’t provide quite this effect but we’ll see what we can do 🙂

The pillars help break the room into two areas of activity and  light and shade.

The beams’ length, angles and spacing took a bit of working out …

and a great deal of swearing.

Didn’t want great big support pillars blocking off the view but also felt there should at least be an acknowledging nod towards the vague idea of practicality whilst mostly avoiding the use of ‘sky hooks’ and a totally floating ceiling.

The squarish spacing will, if it works, have a somewhat theatrical use and the triangle on the far left is, well,
a triangle on the far left.
