Stage 3, BA (Hons) Architecture


The aim was to create an urban garden, a new job centre, and to reintroduce homeless people back into society. I wanted to play on the public and private accesses in the design which was why I made the building accessible from the wall. The public entrances are the reception on ground floor level and the public horticulture library on the first-floor level. Private entrances into the production spaces and sleeping areas are hidden through gestures such as smaller doors and longer pathways.
