This is an artist in residence which contains houses,ateliers,galleries,and shops in the suburb of London.

The site is under a highway which might be said as 'Surplus sapces in the city'.


The main space is binded by several arc walls made of exposed concrete which are penetrated by glass boxes.

These glass boxes are dwellings and atelers for artists.


The large spaces binded by several walls function as ateliers,galleries,and ehibition spaces.

In the small glass boxes,one will concentrate on their works.

On the other hand,the central space invokes communications and inspirations between them.


Glass boxes are open galleris and shops outside the walls.

From the slits of the arc walls,the light will go through which express transitional beauty.


Simple forms of walls and glass boxes leads to cost reduction and easy to maintenance.

This is a fortress from which artists will fly to the world having communications and gaining studies each other.
