Interior of a Tower. Design for a mausoleum for my firm. The main building is a hallway of crypts on one side, and windows out to the lake on the other. The tower marks a corner of the building as an alternative entrance, where you come in off-center of the main space, take in the height of the tower, and then after stepping out from under the lowered tower walls (nine feet above the floor), you find yourself on center with the rest of the space. The space under the tower was inspired by an interior of Alvaro Siza’s Gracia de Santa Maria San Marcos chapel in Portugal.
