This breaking camp facility is designed for the craftmanship of weaving. Thus the form of the building is consisted by two components weaving together. The curvy component is weaving through the more rigid middle component. The distinction can also be told by the different choice of the materials. The first and the third storey use wood mostly and the second storey use concrete instead. Meanwhile, the form also engages itself with the site of a steep slope.


Site Plan

The design of the Roundtreebranch library is inspired by the context and the site. Its shape of the footprint comes from the tri-angle site which is fromed by the Cherry Avenue and BNSF Railway. The dynamic facade design, as well as the choice of the materials echo the railway track near by. Moreover, the large open interior space and flexible usage meets the function of library.

The design of the restaurant is inspired by the traditional Japanese architecture which is characterized by its lightness, transparency and organic material. The straight lines and simple form echoes the theme of the building-a sushi place. Also there is a transition from private area to the public area, and the inside space to the outside space, from the East side of the building (Kitchen and bar) to the West side (outdoor sitting platforms).

Take the local material and vernacular building typology as the main concept for the design of this project, Rainbow Network Headquarter is a group of facilities designated for the charity organization of Rainbow Network in Managua, Nicaragua. The materials are used in this project are locally available materials including bamboo, corrugated metal sheet and concrete block. The basic form of the design is a series variation of a typical house shape.
