Playing with Translucency | Historic Project Excerpts

Experiments in transparency and translucency, using layers of the facade to merge with and hint at the functions and movements within the building. This is an ongoing interest for the practice with the subtleties of exterior and interior relationships being explored in ways that are about both ambiguity and connection. With the ongoing interest in facade manipulation in Architecture, we believe that the envelope continues to be about both mediation and communication, with the decorative possibilities acheived as a result of these explorations.

Built Project:

New low energy slab cooled reception and registry buildings (clashing into and in symbiotic relationship with the back of an existing 60’s courtyard block originally designed for this purpose) designed and completed for the University of Kent at Canterbury while Ulysses Sengupta was Project Architect at Cornish Architects in London.
