‘Transition Spaces’

The design introduces a space in between, used both as a bridge and as transition between the exterior space and the interior spaces. This space creates a ‘Spatial opportunity’ for a range of activities, and at the same time can also take up the function of the nearby space.

Spaces with specific and distinct functions may be referred to as “Static spaces”. Whereas, the spaces which connect them are “Dynamic spaces” as they are constantly evolving.

The introduced transition space helps a lot more in climatology aspects, taking into consideration the topography and the climatic conditions of the particular region.
