The “lines” we conceived aiming to modify the spatial characteristics of the area between the bridge’s column and the embankment on our site, combine the double function: window-door. We wanted to transform the long, infinite corridor into a well defined space creating thus another closed space limited by the edge of the embankment.The super-element we imagined, built and assembled according to our concept's main idea, adds to the space a light and exclusively made-out-of-wood structure.

Our main objective during this phase, measures was to underline the spatial particularities of our site focusing on the Cut-House.
We tried various methods of measuring, by the end we realised that the best way suiting our building and helping us exploring our site and detecting its characteristics was to use the windows as a reference in our measures. By knowing the detailed sizes of the windows we were in order to highlight the denivelation of the ground around the building, the pit’s depth and also the different facade heights which gives our building different dimensions depending on which one of the five facades we are looking at.
By that, accompanied with the drawings, the plaster model and some photos we were able to “decorticate” our site and to have a complete, clear spatial lecture of the area.
Our perspectives added a lot to our spatial comprehension aiming to visualise its particularities to the maximum .
So we followed the idea of choosing points of views that can’t be reached in the reality. In a drawing the point of view was on the road's level observing the pit, or inside the building side by side to the Cut-House. However the most useful perspectives were the ones that allowed us to enter the locked-on Cut-House and to explore its interior space.
