a-RT & DCOOP. This project is housed within an adjacent pair of ship containers which is a part of a large public realm along the coast of Mandwa. The coherency and connectedness in the internal space is achieved by collapsing the common surface between, and inserting an internal laminated ribbed skin. The ribbed skin is pealed strategically to bring in a dialogue between the container surface and the skin surface. This layer accommodates the programmatic needs such as display niches, counters, shelves and storage spaces.
The aesthetic of space is envisaged to be colorful, contrasting to the static repetitive nature of the ship containers.
