Program as an Annex

This project emphasizes a lack of distinction between programmatic spaces and aims to break down traditional means of boundary. This interconnected space is produced through the play between unrestricted circular forms in rising ground planes with the rectilinear structural system. The organisation of the spaces provides an environment where different activities can go on concurrently, delineating sociality and dynamism in what was once a restrictive shed space. The program is reimagined as additions to a whole rather than distinct separated boxes.
