On all three zones the roof space will be used for cultivation of crop. Zone 01 specialises in cotton growth and Zones 02 & 03 are used for domestic food produce.
Cotton cultivation demands climatic conditions that are not externally achievable throughout the year in the UK. Therefore it requires an architectural solution that moderates and controls the internal environment simulating the correct climatic conditions.
Due to the articulated nature of the external envelope, the internal space is lit with good levels of natural light. The central space has a large floor to ceiling height that adds to the grandeur and importance to the central space. The internal program gives flexibility in that the space can be filled with various market style events, fairs and conventions.
