Design Process & Environmental Strategy

Concept Diagram - Pedestrian flow analysis The Centre for Peace and Reconciliation Studies located in the heart of Coventry City centre is largely based upon its surrounding site and context. The buildings form is largely driven by the two main pedestrian routes across its site. The strategy behind this concept is to form a physical breakdown of the spaces surrounding the site whilst keeping the original pedestrian routes across the site in situ.

Environmental performance Section Diagram

Louvre System

The environmental strategy for this project focussed on the integration between the buildings environmental performance and its aesthetic appeal. The exposed concrete ceilings and iconic louvre system are both key examples of how the building makes use of environmentally orientated design features in an aesthetically pleasing fashion.
