Buildings should be intended around their dwellers and their surroundings. The concept of Activating Spatial Quality is rooted from creating a space potential for movement and access to the natural environment. The architecture of “The Space” is letting all users have an access to public space that may direct them to embrace great things living in a city.
Architects usually end their design process after giving the most basic needs of the users. But what makes a great building design is continuing to maximize the use of a space for its users.
Caloocan City is the fourth most populous city in the Philippines. It is one of the 16 cities that comprise the Philippines’ National Capital Region (NCR) of Metro Manila. The common misconception of people living in a city is the assumed restriction to nature and the unending city buzz. However, by activating spatial quality and activating public space, users are given a barrier and escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. The spatial experience goes hand in hand with the convenience of the local and attractiveness of neighbourhood and security, making its residents embrace the quality of living in the space.
