BUILDING TYPE:
Museums and exhibition buildings

The floor plan consists of two linked equilateral triangles, one facing the road and containing the gallery, the other overlooking private ground and containing the residence. Each triangle has a steel frame holding the floor slabs, balconies and wall partitions. Placing the frame at 45 degrees in the facade creates conservatories where there is glass. The rising facade is interrupted by a projecting square staircase where glass meets brick.
