MONTAGE of one module
Montage of one module step by step
The column of the bridge on the site creates a rupture between the different lengths of the protostructure. We were drawn to working around and negotiating this point of rupture.
At this point, our decision was to transform the existing bridge column into an essential element spatial determinant of our "room".
The floor of our room thus grew up around the column in a slope, spreading around it and repeating its pattern; acting as a link between other rooms on either side, as well as a link between both sides of the otherwise ruptured protostructure.
The gradient of our floor slope was calculated in order to amplify the pedestrian experience of passing across and between the protostructure elements, without impeding the will to sit around the column and be still.
