The main idea of the design is to have fun. The silo of the existing Paisley Mill provides heritage with the old materials and the mill equipment, but is invigorated with the playground and an eco-friendly environment for the community. This project will demonstrate a good example of energy-efficient building.
1. SITE PLAN
The Rainwater harvesting system reserves water flowing from the roof and site into the bio-retention pond, for reintroduction into the building for non-potable water, including washroom flushing and site plan irrigation. The Solar harvesting system placed on rooftop will harvest solar energy, and will light up the building and the site.
2. FLOOR PLANS
A new feature stairwell structure is added to the north of the building. The cylindrical space on the northeast corner expands the floor space with FUN slides around the outside of the new space. It runs around the cylindrical wall from one level to another for fun experience. ('3. FUN fact')
The existing cupola on the roof is reconstructed to provide the new observatory floor. On the ground floor, the new ramp and other site-improvement features are introduced to meet accessibility requirements. The north side of the building envelope and part of the east side will be replaced with window wall openings and eco-friendly wood siding materials from local vendors. The Northeast edge will demonstrate how the building is interconnected and transformed from old to new materials,
