Now that we had moved the box into the position we wanted it, we had to think about how we would put the walls and roof up. We wanted the roof to be curved, so that it would feel like there was more room in our space. Having the roof curved, gave us the extra height at the top of the curve which is exactly what we wanted.

We had decided that the walls had to be curved round to create a back curved wall and so it would look a bit like a set design. This was something we were aiming fort with the box design element of the HABlab installation. We had painted cardboard black and without painting the other side this made the cardboard automatically curve. So as we painted the other side it straightened out and became (believe it or not) easier to curve into the shape we wanted.

All we had to do now was add in the vinyl elements, and the furniture.
