{Form & Materiality}

The rhythm of the roof form helps to break up the buildings size and works to the scale of the surrounding housing

{Materiality} The concept for the use of the materials stems from the structuralist theory of binary opposition, in the way that two terms or two related terms are opposite in meaning. “It is the contrast between two mutually exclusive terms, such as on and off, up and down, left and right.� (Baldick, 2004) The strategy is to emphasise this relationship and develop a complementary and contrasting material pallete that draws attention to the way the building is made. Some examples of this approach are outlined opposite.

{Standardising Components}

“The best standardisation committee in the world is nature herself, but in nature standardisation occurs mainly in connection with the smallest possible units: cells. The result is millions of flexible combinations in which one never encounters the stereotyped.” Alvar Aalto

The building has sought to form the complex from the simple by standardising the building into two core components, or “cells” as Aato describes, that vary to give the building it’s form.

1.

Social spaces are more intimate in scale with a more organic roof form

2. Primary internal glue - laminated structure

The structure of the undulating roof form has been emphasised throughout the building to create a lofty inspirational learning environment that references the cell structure of a leaf.

T

he Maker Library space creates an open and collaborative work environment. The section gives a gradient of spaces with lettable open maker studios at ground floor who are able to use the facilities in the labrary, stimulating the sharing of skills amonst users. A floating timber walkway lifts quieter digital work and reading spaces up into the roof eaves, close enough to touch the roof structure. These spaces put visitors at eye level with the large trees on site.

he design of the cranking components are more intimate in scale to the larger making spaces. These areas are orientated around social activities, each with their own external deck overlooking either the Maker High St. or Maker Forest. These components create a darker cosier contrast to the light and lofty maker spaces with spotlights lighting up the glulam and timber roof structure.

T

he design of these units has been orientated around developing a framework that enables all levels of society to take control of the design of their home. Residents are able to choose their level of involvement from complete construction, to self finish, or full turn key. This method ensures

that a wide demographic of society will be able to a play a part in “making� their home and ensure a diverse community is brought to Knowle West. The South Co-housing units are represented here to give an understanding of the principles that are replicated for the housing units to the North of the site.

Building Process and Common house: Residents help to build the communal room which is initially used as a workshop and canteen for the rest of the construction period. Sharing of skills, tools and time is encouraged. Site Layout The units are orientated in parallel terraces with the main facade facing towards the south - west maximising sunlight into the streetyard and raised terraces

Common house acts as public gateway to the site and social gather space Parking at the periphery to enable the majority of the site to be pedestrian favoured

Kit-of-Parts: Kit-of-Parts: Shell units constructed from standardised components manufactured off-site, using a core structurally insulated panel (SIP) structure. Construction is low cost and fast, meaning home owners can move in quickly and start adapting the homes.

Timber shingles Cedar Charred timber Polycarbonate Profile sheeting

Maximising Diversity & Creativity The standardising of components has meant a balance has been achieved between affordability and the diverse range of options that are possible for residents. The ability to easily grow their home when more money becomes available means the street frontage will continually evolve.

“Open Building” System The design of the live work units has been differentiated from the residential character of the custom build houses to be tailored towards the “maker”. These units require more self build skills with a pre determined structure that inhabitants can infill as they wish. The twin glulam structure gives some unity to the street frontage amonst the organic infill. External space

Private space Workshop units can be broken up however desired with the open plan structure by occupants

rises up through the levels, with the structure giving the potential for informal cover or a framework for greenery.

The winding street uses the same principle all along the street with cranking sections being left for communal facilities which can be inhabited over time

Facade design Development

Sheltered promenade with cafes and bars adjacent is extended Key view to cranes overlooked from raised cafe deck and down river to Lloyds rooftop bar

Aerial view from North East - The buildings roof form takes a contemporary twist on the neighbouring industrial shed roofs

This experiment used horizontal louvres which was later changed for vertical. The facade combines vertical timber cladding panels with louvering over glazing to dance studios. This allows the continuity of the facade to flow over the glazing and emit a glow across the harbourside and also helps to control solar gain and glare.

Structural Strategy • Minimise on site construction by generating a kit of parts that can be quickly erected on site. • Expose and celebrate the buildings structure • Maximum flexibility for internal spaces • Structure sticks to the rigid 5 x 10m grid towards the North of the site and gradually begins to break on the way through the building

{Green Roof Competition Bid for Spike Island}

Green Island

“If we steal the ground for a building, we can give it back nature on the roof. “ (Wolfgang Ansel)

External gallery for art, nature & play

Proposal Overview

Green Island aims to provide a public green space that will act as a gallery for art, nature and play. This will be achieved through the use of a lightweight floating timber boardwalk that leads you through the scheme and encourages you to take a moment and enjoy the views overlooking the city or interact with the green undulating roof form.

This proposal would be set not only to benefit Spike island, solving issues of a leaking roof, and reducing energy bills, the local community would gain a real asset of a diverse green space that is in a central location, something that is in high demand in the 2015 European Green Capital, Bristol.


A. Steps to the east side of the roof are wide and shallow to create an amphitheatre, space is left in front for potential events.

B. The troughs of the roof curves create contained social spaces which are accessible from the main timber walkway, flowerbeds are then added using an independent timber structure

B

Green Island 1. Extensive green roof 1. Extension of existing entrance 2. Steps create amphitheatre, holds potential use for events 3. Lightweight timber walkways bridge the roof arches. Steps lead down to the existing arches of the roof to create social spaces 4. Allotment growing space have been designed using raised planters to reduce cost and maximise flexibility 5. A green house follows the curve of the roof to create space in the trough

A

Lightweight timber walkway steps down towards a decked social space

The troughs of the arches will be planted with greenery and flowers. The lightweight timber walkway will slot in between the gaps in the rooflights

D. Food growing space is allocated to the rear of the roof plan, with a new staircase leading to the existing artists courtyard. An open space of decking and greenery sits adjacent to the courtyard giving a space that is suitable for either working or socialising.

C. The timber walkway is punctuated with breaks to give space to either relax or work. The neighbouring warehouse building also holds the potential to become part of the external gallery in a similar fashion to Nelson St.

C

D

Flexible Gallery Space Simple plywood panels would give the option for the walkway to be used as an external gallery

The greenhouse follows the envelope of the existing concrete shell roof whilst still allowing light to penetrate to the studio spaces below.
