Soild and void studies

Developed sketches for the layout of a suspended café at Ben Nevis. These sketches are exploring the rhythm and balance between solid and void areas in plan. As the structure progresses into space there is a disintegration of the building skin to expose the skeleton floating high above the cliff face. This concept is translated into plan, section and elevation, more exciting design development images to follow.
