Balance and Permeability

Site Permeability

The site context of St. Paul’s, Bristol has shown a strong and diverse cultural quality and reflected an interactive community which brings tension to the desire of the client of having a significant degree of privacy for the Dojo. It has given rise to a question on how does an urban Zen Dojo respect local culture while being mindful of the site context that has been given by the client. This project works through the manipulation and careful architectural management of the degree of permeability with the site, the dojo programme and the architectural elements, to achieve a balance between that conflict.
