Elevation and Oblique Section by Tung Nguyen

Elevation and Oblique Section

Following the concept of defamiliarization, the material lends itself from the existing brick wall in the context by inverting the motor into a structural wire mesh and solid brick into void glass brick. This project also challenges the traditional ground-condition by shearing the extruded volume of the site to create a minimum interacting with the ground. By doing this, it opens up the ground floor for technical functions, as well as creating a 1:12 ADA accessibility ramp to go up to the main room. This structure creates a morié effect for a public space. This giant room serves as a multipurpose room, where it becomes an “extension living room” for the community.
