STELLA introduces a new scale of immersive space to this exploration. One that is nimble, deployable, reconfigurable, and not defined by the bounds of an enclosed room. It operates at a scale in between a piece of furniture and a room creating an implied space. It provides just enough refuge and privacy to allow users to unplug and re-center either as an individual or small group. STELLA is here to provide students, faculty, staff and visitors to The School of Architecture at the University of Virginia with the opportunity for brief but essential moments of respite throughout the day.
