[THIRD WEEK] Final Review

The site has strong urban characteristics with building edges along George Street and West George street. St. George’s Tron Church stands in the middle of George street and West George Street, and the site located just around the corner.

The ground floor plan is a crucial part of the building as it is the threshold of the journey from the public to the main space of salon. Main entrance facing Buchanan street is bigger than another entrance along West Nile street, and visitors are greet with cafe and exhibition space before proceed to the salon space.
