Design proposals for a conceptual design for a roof top terrace of 200 square metres overlooking Chelsea Bridge along the Thames. The roof top area forms a residual space, part of the Grosvenor Waterside Development designed by Allies and Morrison Architects. The site is in a particularly sensitive location due to its height and exposure along major traffic thoroughfares.
The design looked at ways to minimise the impact of the building in relation to its site by a layering of transparent screens of glazing with differing opacities. The design, inspired by the work of artist Dan Graham blurs the distinction of open and closed spaces integrating the pavilion within the overall landscaping strategy for the rooftop allowing the left over space to be used to its fullest potential while reducing its impact within the wider context.
