The Trinity church defines the identity and the appearance of this area of the city centre of Leeds.
Opening the views of the roof- arcade- structure to the tower of church allow a visual presence of it when walking through this new public spaces. We always intended to introduce a new square, a new piece of city into the existing fabric of the trinity quarter.

Our intervention should be an integral part of the surrounding. That ‘s why we try to connect our project gradually with the existing buildings on allsides of the site. We also try to estabilish a careful relation in scale between existing + new elements.

The roof of our proposal is the element of our design that makes these possible. The roof structure will be the element that will be give identity, The special quality to the space.

Aldo Van Eycke once describe the beauty of snow falling in a city. This snow is able to transform the activities / the space in the city. Children sking in the street (traffic jams).

A new continuous white space…our roofstructure is a bit more permanent than snow but it intends to establish this joyful background.
