An irregular exterior volume used to indent 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 designed a canopy to convert this unused volume with skylights into a gathering space for occupants of the whole building. While the enclosure is uninsulated, with a radiant heated bench the space has potential as a gradient of shelter and light for short-term interactions.
