WHITE FOREST

Inspired by creating an ambiguous and fluid social space, the concept “White Forest” is developed. The architectural concept, “White Forest,” is achieved by using a forest of columns to create spatial differences. The urban strategy of the project is to create a  wrap that merges with the existing warehouse. The polycarbonate facade mimics the industrial quality of the warehouse with a low profile modern touch. While the courtyard links the old and new, the programs explore the relationship of solid and void. The outcome is a series of flexible spaces that encourage interactions.
