The design intention was to provide modern living necessities while disturbing the existing house as little as possible. the new additions are to the east of the existing house minimally disturbing the existing concrete block wall, linking the two forms through the line of the existing house’s corridor, and stepping back to retain the overall proportional integrity of the existing house. the addition, clad in anthra zinc, cradles a conceptual fragment of the original which functions as a bedroom.

The new buildings rise up from the ground and provide spaces which articulate the fusion of outdoor landscape and indoor exhibition. This active ground modulates according to program and location in the park. The endpoints of the buildings blur the line between building and park by offering inside-out spaces as display areas and projection surfaces related to the temporary exhibitions inside.
