This image shows the façade of a mixed use building I had designed last year as a part of our design studio. The intention of the façade is to convey ideas of mixing, weaving, intertwining and is constructed of an iron composite material to reflect the train tracks on the rear of the site. Similar to the performances of a fence, the façade starts on the ground and elevates till it suits the façade heights of the adjacent buildings to maintain street front heirachy. Entrance into the complex through this wall was provided by careful placing of specific bars which stopped at junctions yet at the same time saving the form from traditional door systems.
