The project consists of two main programs: Canal Museum which was originally the program of the building and Music Venue. For these projects, each cylinder located underneath the building is designed differently to accommodate the programs.
In this project, the Canal Museum gets an interesting update and the Music Venue is designed uniquely to create a different music experience with various types of performances.
One of the interesting points of this project is the journey people experience before arriving at the site. Since the building is located near the Regent’s Canal, the backside of the building is being used as one of the main entrances which allow visitors to arrive at the site with the boats provided for this purpose.
