The competition is about the design of a wood structure on the roof of the Finnish Institute in London (United Kingdom). Its purpose is to host lunch and short brakes, get-together parties and summer events.
The original design has been developed to better suite site views and to express at best the needs of the Finnish Institute by creating a strong presence in the context of Eagle Street.
Acting like a pair of “binoculars”, 2 frames draw attention to Eagle Street, the main axis of the site, while a third one connects them and emphasizes the view toward the sky. The result is a winding wooden ribbon that creates a continuos and bright central space where where finnish wood elements and London's surrounding context visually interplay to enjoy relax moments and foster informal meetings with emerging artists.
