The third dimension

The third dimension

A sense of space is created through vertical circulations, visual, and physical connections.

All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space. Phillip Johnson - Architect

Generous space

Good building concepts consider the fact that compelling spatial features result from clear planning, whereby the vertical dimension is part of the quality and function of a building.

Focus on verticality

Visible and inviting vertical connections extend the function of interconnected floors, creating a richer sequence of spaces through cross views.

Exterior volumes

The interplay between interior and exterior volumes enables the experience of space. The in-between space complements the building volumes and is defined by structural elements, such as roofed connecting paths and comprehensive landscaping.

Key to The third dimension

  • Visible and inviting vertical connections contribute to the awareness of space.
  • Consider an atrium to provide light and generosity of space.
  • Cross views guide users throughout the building.
