The project site is situated in Salcedo St. Legaspi Village, Makati City bounded by immense urban context, commercial spaces, office spaces, residential condominiums and educational institutions. This creates a vibrant community within.
The existing façade was developed in line with its function to accommodate more office spaces. One of the major interests of design is the relationships of a new building to its surroundings. The design was divided into two, the bottom part will be representing the micro context (adjacent buildings) and the upper part reflects the macro context (Makati’s skyline).
The scale and proportion division of the building façade establishes a positive dialogue with the neighbouring buildings. They consist of vertical and horizontal direction wherein the verticality is represented on the rear part of the building while the horizontal is reflected through the adjacent buildings.
Creating horizontal and vertical lines that intersect and create volume carries positive dialogue to its surroundings and thus contributes to the street unity.
