This new extension is linked by a 14 meter length perforated pink sheet metal bridge that creates a permeable spine through the warehouse – allowing light to filter through to the lower level. The intervention is a playful reference to the site’s former industrial history, and provides circulation spaces that are ever-changing with textured and dappled light through the transparency.
