Connection to Harringay Warehouse District
Walking through the Harringay Warehouse District, we a noticed many buildings have colored inserts, for example: yellow frames or a basement, blue doors and gates, pink elements on the facades or colored containers (blue outside and yellow inside). So the idea was born to make bright and colored furniture from modules inside the pavilion, with which you can form different spaces. It is also a reminder that there used to be the main manufacturing centre for Maynards. This reflects the idea that all people have their own bright features that may not be noticeable at first glance.
Man is a miniature universe. Each person has something cosmic that gives him an impulse to create and realize his ideas.
The idea of our project is to create a microcosm inside the Harringay Warehouse District.
The microcosm has a three-part structure: physical body, soul and spirit. In our project, the body is the pavilion, the soul is the organizers of the project, and the spirit are creative people who will breathe life into this pavilion.
The core is a pavilion of wooden structures and a polycarbonate roof, to protect from sun and rain. Wooden beams can be used for lamps, spotlights, plants or fairy lights can be hung on them, as well as a screen for film.
Around the pavilion there is a white awning, which is attached to metal racks. The design allows you to cover what is happening in the pavilion from the street and noise, but at the same time leaves a small gap in order to see fragments of actions. Under this awning can be placed seating, bar and tables. Thus, visitors can listen to the concert not only in the pavilion, but also around it. The awning rises higher towards the existing trees and forms a patio.
At the base of all the constructions are interconnected and on top of them is a flooring made of wood. Thus, the pavilion does not require a foundation and can be moved to different places.
Walking through the Harringay Warehouse District, we saw many brick buildings, but many buildings have colored inserts, for example: yellow frames or a basement, blue doors and gates, pink elements on the facades or colored containers in the factory. So the idea was born to make bright and colored furniture from modules inside the pavilion. It is also a reminder that there used to be the main manufacturing centre for Maynards.
We took three modules as a basis, their sizes: 400x400x400 mm, 400x2000x400 mm, 600x2000x400 mm. These modules can be arranged in different objects and thus form different spaces, for different functions: meetings, exhibitions, film screenings, presentations, etc.
The 400x400x400 mm module is basically a place for one person to sit, they can be rearranged and form the different groups of interests.
The 400x2000x400mm module is a bench or countertop of a bar; if you stack them together, you can get walls for a warehouse or a dressing room for artists or walls for an exhibition of paintings.
The 600x2000x400 module is a table, if two elements are laid on top of each other, it is also the basis for the bar counter, stage, amphitheater or counters for the market.
The goal of our project is to create a bold, interesting and transformable space where creative people can communicate, meet, express themselves and be inspired.
This pavilion forms cosmic space and communicate many stars.
