Participants are required to design an architectural Entrance space whose context relates to a specific place?

The project does not have to be geolocated in a real context; it is the participant's choice to identify the place to be narrated. The evaluation of the project focuses on the development of the entrance architecture and its dialogue with the interior space and the exterior space that respectively precedes and follows the access to the inhabited place (see article 02 of the contest notice).

Does the residential structure/housing need to relate to an existing project or can it be a conceptual space?

The design space may refer to either an architecture related to a residential building of one's choice or an area that does not have to be actually existing. The focus of the DoorScape contest will be on the design space dedicated to the entrance (indoor/outdoor).

Does the design area cover only the entrance space or should it cover the entire residing building?

We suggest focusing only on the entrance space, then if for completeness of vision you wish to extend the design area there is no problem; however, please be aware that the focus will be primarily on the space dedicated to the entrance.

In what format shall the project be submitted?

Regarding the material to be submitted, there are no constraints; the design shall be presented in an appropriate scale, but such material is in any case at the discretion of the participant. The format of the board should be preferably A1.
