Abstract

The dissertation provides a solution to the existing Boukunde buildings spatial shortfall. A proposal for additional space is used as catalyst for improving daylight conditions within the 'dark' southern extents of the building. The expansion becomes a gateway for future works by opening up a once impervious shell and services core to regenerate space plan potential and circulatory flow. The buildings origins and evolution are investigated to ascertain the lessons learnt, and to create a visual reference to the past via aspects of the new construction. The reference is extended via recycling of existing materials and components into the proposal in an altered, but recognisable format.
