- More context on surrounding buildings/area. Shops, bus station, residential etc
- Volumes are boxes. Perhaps lower ground functions needs a different size/more generous volume
- Develop the pedestrian connection – Where can they access the site? Are there multiple entrances? Is Rye Lane the main access? Non residential access/heavy traffic.
- Landscape the access points/look at the open spaces on site
- Buffer zones between residential/car parks
- Perhaps do not have direct connection to Morrisons – unless utilising the roofspace
- Consider different arrangements – changing cluster direction ?
- Site plans – line weight is important. Thicker lines for the buildings and thinner lines for the roads. Same with sections. Interior lines would be thinner than cut through. Don’t forget foundation
- Reconsider privacy with residential – with surrounding walkways, there is no privacy. Ground level residential areas have no privacy – perhaps raise the ground floor level OR include a private garden. Perhaps sheds/storage underneath to raise the ground level – will also help with flooding risks.
- Too samey for shapes (exterior frames I think) – perhaps some of these could be a different materiality to suggest different functions. Perhaps its a greenhouse. Have clear variations in section.
- Distinction between public and private
- FRAC Dunkerque / Lacaton & Vassal – They design cheap, simple, lightweight, easy to build, for the community structures. Mimicked existing building but then changed materiality.
- Rafael Moneo: Moderna Museet Stockholm (the roofs) – roofs are the same but they have changed the scale (like small, medium, large). With different sized rooms, show clearly how the scale has changed.
