Phase 03: The Residence

This design aims to create to distinct yet cohesive spaces by juxtaposing the modernist style of the early 20th century with the contemporary parametric style of today. A private residence sits above a public pavilion that houses both showers and lockers.

Placing the residence above the public space creates a distinct sense of separation between the public and private spaces. This ensures that the residence retains its privacy while also distancing it from the noise below

The style of the residential building is an appropriation of Le Corbusier's Villa La Lac, and borrows distinct features from it such as the windows, stairs and a rooftop terrrace.

The showers carry over parametric style that's seen in the pavilions design, albeit on a much smaller scale. Although not intended as private enclosures, these shell like structures still manage to be inviting.

The locker structure is again based of the geometries we see in the pavilion and the showers. Various sized compartments mean that people only wishing to store small personal items are able to do so without wasting excessive space.
