Adaptive Re-Use Project: Centre for Urban Gardening


The personal project allowed me to explore an area of interest that I am passionate about. Informed by my research into urban gardening and urban sustainability as well as the city in which I was based at the time (Glasgow), I formulated a program that could be applied to an existing building in the city centre. Many of these functions can be seen from the street.

The large communal picninc table instills a sense of community amongst both volunteers and visitors to the centre. One end of the table sits flush with the window, thus inviting people from the street to come in and explore.

Concept: Communication The adjoining meeting rooms are the focal point of this office space. Clad in acoustic panelling, these rooms are reminiscent of a recording studio. The intersecting geometries are intended to symbolise the breaking of barriers and hence, improved communication.
