1:20 Model

The aim of my model was to examine the materiality of the building by focusing on the entrance area.

From the exterior my design is quite pure in form. Thus I have chosen concrete as the primary material to be used in the building's construction.The walls consist of two layers of reinforced concrete, between which a layer of insulation is sandwiched. I intend the concrete to be dyed to give it a a charcoal grey colour.

The floor and roof are also concrete in structure. However I have chosen a wood finish for the floors and copper sheeting for the roof. These materials, which are warm in colour, stand in direct opposition to the cold concrete.
