The multi-purposed roof has functions including rain water collection that feeds the gardens, sunlight penetration, and air dynamics at outer perimeter.

The roof seals the building with the bottom layer of metal decking and glazing, while upper metal panels are peeled up and allow sunlight to penetrate into the interior.

Facade Response (V-Ray, Photoshop)


Sectional Perspective (Rhino, V-Ray, Photoshop)


The hotel is divided into two main sections: one is thickened facade of SPA rooms; another contains guest rooms. Outdoor shared spaces are dispersed in between.

Facade Structure

Air flows through voids between SPA rooms to the outdoor spaces.


Sectional Perspective (Rhino, V-Ray, Pencil)


The facade creates different performance during the day: in daytime, adequate daylight is diffused into Spa rooms; in nighttime, they become showcases revealing shadows of interior activities.

Spaces

Each pavilion is an entity but can be accessed from the “space of connection� through a ramp system. The ramp continues up, providing access to spaces inside the pavilion.

The project is formed of a series of volumes and platforms as an urban interruption around the existing railway infrastructure, aimed at reactivating the obsolete surroundings.

WATERLOO INTERRUPTION


The project starts from the waterfront, extends to the bus shelter in front of Waterloo Station, and finally to King’s college. By integrating architecture and walkways, the project provides a continuous set of educational programs and branches out for public access.
