Structure Model

The concept comprises of a number of interconnected lightweight timber frames similar to the structure above. The structures themselves comprise of various spaces which vary from being fully exposed to fully insulated: some spaces are sheltered only by a roof, others by semi-permeable louvred walls, others by glass, while the core spaces would be full insulated and removed from the outdoor environment. The main structural support is supplied by the extended roof rafters which anchor the building to the ground thus leaving the front walkway be suspended. The central "glass house" is structurally independent of its surroundings and is supported by concealed steel frame. The roof structure is a timber frame with copper standing seam cladding.
