Observation of the site – After visiting the site I chose that specific corner of the building which became my focus and starting point for the project. It is a junction of three main existing walls of the ruin which are held up by different layers of material and nature.
Abstract model of the junction – The model is showing an abstract interpretation of the junction. Scale 1:20

Model of the existing ruin / Scale 1:100
Sketches – The sketches are showing how I use the junction to create a new base structure for the extension of the ruin
MAIN ENTRANCE – The path leads guests into the reception area, from where they can access the whole area
MAIN HALL – The area invests the guest to gather together, it is an open and multifunctional space. On the first floor, you will find the art studios
THE HUB – Are small houses located within the area, which can host up to two people for a couple of days? The hub is built onto the junction structure.
