TRANSIT
This project is conceived as a floating room, a destination for visitors to experinece a unique space, a threshold between river and land.  Before arriving and departing visitors will  transit into this floating vessel, an interstitial space charged with latent energy.

SIMPLE
The design is simple, a circular pontoon structure houses the programmatic requirements and is hoolowed out at the centre as to create a poetic inner water courtyard, a secret contemplative space.

SECTION

The design enables the section of the building to be activated, with the courtyard becoming the link between viewing platform and the termminal areas.
