My concept is about the maximization of common spaces in order to have a connection, communication and a link with all floors and all people present in this building. Since this building contains a void in its center, i have decided to create patches of terraces on each floor. Those terraces are called the “Meeting Points”. A vertical connection is built since the terraces are linked vertically.
