Changing the exterior impact from a building from humble beginnings without having to change the entirety of the form is a common challenge when facing the restructuring of retired industrial communities in the ever-expanding urban environment. This approach was to create an element that navigates this update while retaining individual aesthetics for each entry.
Through the use of a rudimentary shape , the triangle, with rigid structure and flexible application properties, the resulting structure allows for moments of negative space while having a performative function. The construction of the structures are broken into smaller assemblies to allow for simplicity in transportation and installation. With each of these assemblies being able to be pre-fabricated off-site the result has higher quality standards and ultimately a quicker install timeline.
The various pre-fabricated assemblies allow for a variation of execution, this can be clearly seen through the similar yet different results of both sides of the building the installation takes place.
