"Perched between two giant volumes of the existing building, Exit 45 is akin to a tree house, above the bustling campus activities. With its brilliant red color and striking volume, the project does not try to "blend-in" with the context. Yet, the interior space has the quality of a retreat. Through the filtered light and screened views, the interior feels even more like an "hide-out".

The interior "quieteness" and the exterior exuberance is the chiasmatic point of the project, and is the answer to the unique question," How can one feel at ease, inside of a spectacle?"

The exterior sunlight, activities, noise, all gets filtered and toned down, through the screening surface. Thus, the exterior world, (i.e. exterior spectacle) also becomes at ease with one's senses.
