Saturday, October 4th, 2014

The location became a Housing Expo at around 90 years ago as its quiet ambiance remains from the inherited residential surroundings. However, after 11 months of research and analyzing the environment, the convenience of people was adopted for their essential needs in everyday life with the flow of time. Having this condition, Timber Dentistry will stand as an iconic architecture that signifies its remaining value, which in the future, endeavors to mend the environmental conflicts.

The shared space is defined by rotated walls set along spatial axis at various angles according to the surroundings, creating a sense of distortion in space.
