Establishing a spectrum of spatial situations on a web site of simply 175m2 is a problem and one which has outlined the DNA of this challenge. The extension has been zoned into three north-south bands, establishing the primary realms: communal, out of doors, and personal. Two east-west bands additional divide every of those realms into two zones: beneficiant and intimate.
