An irregular exterior volume indented an orthogonal commercial space and this volume was eventually enclosed as part of the building. However this left the new uninsulated semi-indoor space unprogrammed and in need of activity.
We are now converting this unused volume into a gathering space for occupants of the whole building. While it is uninsulated, the space has potential as a gradient of shelter and light for short-term interactions.
