DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Edinburgh

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Art Center

INSPIRATION:
EDINBURGH is a very old city full of inspiration as it is a perfect combination between old and new, centuries of history meets a world with class in a unique setting. The architecture in EDINBURGH is outstanding starting from the narrow closes of the medieval Old Town to the grace of the Georgian New town and above all this, with it’s towering splendor, stands Edinburgh castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site, EDINBURGH is a compact and bustling city yet home of the largest arts and festivals.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project was done for the master's design lab 2. The main concept was driven from the recorded textures of the city and the changing levels of its contours as well as mapping the city which had a great impact on forming the mass to blend with site. For the interior spaces i tried hard to reflect the nature side of the site and bring the vegetation inside at the entrance zone. For the exhibition spaces, the main idea was changing levels through the stairs from one exhibition area to the next.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Dunbar’s close is located on the Royal mile in Edinburgh old town. The garden has been laid out in the style and character of a 17th century garden, to enter you travel along a narrow, cobbled close It opens out into a surprisingly tranquil and elegant parterre of clipped shrubs. The high church walls set on the west side, thus the design had to be very well crafted to sit and blend in the old heritage site that the Scottish people respect.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
the project started in December 2016 and finished in March 2017.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
several software are used such as grasshopper and rhino for the contouring of the city and the mappings, 3ds max for modeling the design and vray engine for rendering.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
the site is located in Edinburgh city, the garden is almost 93mx25m with a built up area 24mx23m

TAGS:
Architecture, Facade design, Adaptation, Adaptive reuse, Digital photography, Edinburgh, Art center

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
the research done about the city and the garden (dunbar's close) and the textures recorded during the field survives. Also studying the city contours and the changing of levels was very important.

CHALLENGE:
the hardest part was the end product, the challenge was to deliver something different and new but still doesn't stand out and blend in the heritage site and respect it.
