The passerby should feel engaged by the building and can experience an alternative street experience while walking through the inner street of the project. Instead of merely using a building and its function, I tried to make the occupants feel as if they are the building.
Towards the street the functions are more clear and the occupants know which part they are playing and how they are being viewed from the city street.
The garden facade is more ambiguous in that regard. The perforated steel mesh hides and distorts the functions.
The end result is a building in which both the occupants and the functions play a role similar to actors in a play. To accentuate this, there is a street stage, an inner auditorium and a garden facing customizable stage for larger scale performances, all linked together and enabling a seamless performance that draws the people in from the street, takes them inside the building and "ejects" them into the garden stage.
The offices lean as if they are looking down on us.
The theater opens its mouth to speak.
The stores are walking into the street and try to pull us in.
