We designed micro expansion with Big doors and Triangular canopies to rearrange structural stability, thermal condition and new functions, after demolishing existing expansion parts. Intermediate space by micro expansion converted backyard parking to main event space with creating new regional network through the main car street →inside space → sake brewery →market street.
Inside space is composed with existing elements and materials to create future history and new communications between townspeople and visitors with integrating new and old scenery.
