During the early stages of design, it is imperative that the entire team have a clear understanding of the intentions of the project. Simple concept diagrams like these allow us to work through formal and site related concepts quickly and get buy-in from clients and end users. The focus here was how to create a sense of place and scale on a site that was bound on all sides. By leveraging the topography of the site and adjusting our massing we can create a clear front door while maximizing the site’s most unique features.
