Typographic explorations for 5/6 House by Atelier Reza Aliabadi done in collaboration with Borxu Design. He describes the house like this:
“In the same fashion as in a Rubik’s cube 5 out of 6 modules shift in every level to form the living spaces, and one is removed to allow for visual communication and natural light. When on the ground floor a void opens up to the basement, and on the upper level a floor is removed to form a double height living room below…”
Essentially, the house is composed of six units, and one-sixth is hollowed out (the double height living room), leaving five-sixths of the house remaining. The typographical explorations follow the same idea, using six modular units, with one hollowed out. Six units create the 6, and five units create the number 5. The choice of white paper is a nod to the minimalism of Atelier Reza Aliabadi and the idea of shades of white.
