Facade extension

Initial sketches of a facade extension to an existing office building. Multiple layers increase the depth allowing new functions - vertical communication and outdoor areas. A restaurant on the roofterrace uses the extension as entrance/stairway.
After studying the principal rules of minimal surface modeling, a model was set up in GC - rigorously controlling each part of the geometry allowing for parameters to be changed according to the sytem of stairway as well as more intuitive spatial design.
Laser sintered model showing the layers mirrored in the glass facade incresing the depth further more.
Project in collaboration with Justus Dietz at Arkitekturskolan KTH, Studio AIF, 2007. Tutor: Ulrika Karlsson.
