People always work in an artificial environment, why not escape from the synthetic situation to touch nature? It will make people feel relax when they stay close to nature. The surface of the site is limited, so it is a choice to make a three-dimensional forest for people to stay inside. Most of the natural resources are limited, and it is necessary to find something sustainable. This project has a kind of timber structure, which means it has a combination of living and dead vegetation.
Site location In the city centre, most of the spaces are covered without vegetation. It is easier to keep people away from the natural environment and increase the level of stress, anxiety and some other negative influence of mental health. SIte Water Road Building Vegetation 0.1%
Circlation in the project Public Place open to all the people, but need to paid for the service.
Guest People who will have a stay here, have full service of the hotel.
Staff Come for work every day, rightful to access everywhere in the building.

Everyone has an end of life. The meaning of people not only goes with bodies but also the memory for other people. People dead every 30 minutes in Liverpool, it is necessary for the living people to have a place to mourn for there lost, and to look forward to the future. This place is for the people to have a funeral ceremony peacefully, and calm down by the power of nature. It is primarily served for the local traditional funeral ceremony, but also welcome the people to have a typical funeral ceremony for non-religion.
Funeral Facilities in Liverpool
Typically have a death rate of 30 minutes/person. It is necessary to improve the funeral facilities to provide a better service for the residents. It is not only focused on the funeral process itself but also needs to give the psychological service after the funeral ceremony.

As the result of the strong wind across the site, it would be better to have something to block the wind flow to make people feel more comfortable.
Make a connection of two sites through vision . Telescopes maybe required for two sites.
Several components will be used in the project to keep the users away from the strong wind.
Different levels of the project. Orenge line is the route for the living people, and the blue line is for the deadbodies. Two site make a connection throught sights and the transportation throughwater.
Make a connection of two sites through vision . Main axis on the brunswick site.
Add some opening of the solid part and change the profile of the project. Frames are added to make a certain scense of order.
Purple: Public route Green: Project servise area Project servise area comes from the profil of the site.
Show the levels of the importance of the parts of the project through the hight. Corridor for the coffine is added.
Make a connection of edges. A path way for the hearse. The south part is mort public than the noth part of the project.
Main structure of the auditorium is confirmed. A large staircase is added on the north side of the project to connect it with the water in the dock.
Make a kind of level change based on the function. The grey area is mainly for the people come for the funeral ceremony, and the mintis for the service.
Car parking area is converted into a large size of ramp. It would be friendly for the disables with the platforms on it. 16

Cats and dogs are typical animals trained explicitly by human beings. They are trained to serve people, but many of them have a chance to be abandoned for different reasons, especially the racing dogs. This project is a kind of animal shelter with the final care of animals, aim to make a lively environment to courage people to take the abandoned animals back to their home. It is a response for people to bring them back to the peopleâ€™s daily life from a natural environment and is also a part of the human duty to take care of them until their rest of life.
Key element of the site Church, where may have some event in the weekend or some other times, built in red brick.
Nursery near the site, it is busy during the morning when the parents bring their kids to here.
A garden has centries years of history, usually have people walk dogs inside the yard. Have old trees inside.
Residential building near the site. Because people need a quiet environment to have a rest at night, sound insulation must be considered in the project.
There is a playground for kids near the corner of the site. It is a living space. It is an excellent idea to let the children play with the dogs and take them home, but safety is essential as well.
Design process Make a kind of level change to make a boundary of the project.
To ensure that do not too much noise, cut the path of the voice, be a good neighbour. Mirror the patch roof and let them meet each other to make the whole roof. Add a lower level, the noise frome the lower level could also be blocked by the patch roof. Design Concept The design of the project aims to make a kind of design based on different sizes, and various types of the habit of users, such as people from different ages and animals with different sizes. It is essential to increase the communication rate of the abandoned pets and the customer who come here to have visite, to improve the adopted possibility of the pet kept in the institution. Also will try best to keep the original green area of the site, which lead to being an environmentally friendly building and a connection between human beings and the natural environment.
Main functions of the project
Make a connection with the original site. People always walk their dogs or playing with kids around the site. It is a choice to make the project friendly and playable for the public.
As a result of located in the residential area of the city, it would be possible to have a veterinary for the common pets, especially for the dogs and cats. On the other hand, it is a necessary facility for the Trapâ€“neuterâ€“return (TNR)
The main propose of the project is to build a place to keep the abandoned pets. Usually need to put them down with CO2 when they were kept over two weeks, but in the project, with veterinary, we can use TNR instead of it.
Cat cafe is a place to increase the opportunity for people to adopt cats. It also can provide some money to run the facility.
No like cats, dogs usually need to go out for a walk. It is better to have a playground inside the project than walk them out. It is responsible for both residents and animal welfare.
Different kinds of Cats All kinds of cats can be abandoned as well, but some of them might be prison breaking before they become the street cat. When cats come into nature envionment, it will become a kind of disaster for the local ecosystem. It is a kind of animal at the top of the food chain with slaughtering behaviour. As it is one kind of animal expert in jumping and climbing, it is essential to do some vertical design for them in the project. With complete flexibility and skills in actionability, it would be a kind of better choice to keep them inside the rooms rather than let them out.
Cats always keeping curious no matter how old they are, it also could immprove their hunting skills as well.
With perfect performance of balancing and flexibility, they nearly can go to wherever they want.
Movement of Cats
IUCN Due to the IUCN, the cat is one of the most robust invasive species in the world, and they need to lock into the rooms and make sure they can not escape. It is responsible for the natural environment and the pet itself.
Cat cages As cats have high flexibility of jumping and a variety kinds of movement, it is better to provide them with a sort of space for vertical movements. As a result of their living behaver, it is a requirement to provide them with the toilet to use as well.
Nearly every healthy cat could be a wonderful hunter, they could kill nearly almost eveything smaller than them, and might kill them not for eating but for fun
Different kinds of Dogs All kinds of dogs have the possibility to be abandoned, especially for the racingdogs.It is necessary to create a kind of shelter for different kinds of dogs avaliable in UK due to their sizes. It is divides in to three part, small size, medium size and large size of dogs. As the result of the offspring of the grey wolf (C. lupus), they still have some similar social behavier, such as need larger horizontal spaces for activities, hunting, and pasturing. For the dog tunnel design, besically they need enough to move in the cages, also need some land scape design such as different levels of ramps and caves based on their natural behaviers.
Less than 46cm height Companion dogs and terrier dogs
41-61cm height Gundogs,Hering dogs and Hounds
More than 61cm height Working dogs
The smaller the better size, most dogs for this size is for in door pets. These kinds of dogs normally have a lower rank of aggressive.
Basical function of this size is for hunting hand herd. Have some specific choice for the usage, have multiple body types with higher intellengence.
The bigger the better ones.Most dogs in this size are used for their streghth. But not all the working dogs are over 61cm height, but approaching
Movement of Dogs
Dog play ground As the dogs are trained from wolves, they need to have enough place to run, to explore. It is suitable for them to have some activities with level changes. And it is also the right choice for them to be relaxing playing in the changeable playground.
Dog tunnels It is a bit different from cats. Dogs nearly can not have any vertical movements. It is a choice to enlarge their horizontal spaces to move. A double level dog house might be a choice for them in a limited space.
