The brief was to design a visitor centre on a site next to the Royal Crescent in Bath. The building required an exhibition hall, a lecture theatre, a cafe, a kitchen and a souvenir shop. The aim of the project was to design a building that fits into its historical site, forming a relation with the context.
After a careful study of the context, I designed a building that adapts to the site by following the patterns of the other buildings and thier arrangement.

My design consists of two buildings that are separated by a glass box for circulation.  The main building contains the exhibition hall, facing north west direction towards the view of the crescent. This creates a link between the interior and the outside. The two buildings are arranged in a combination of half levels to fit to the slope of the hill.
