The design was located in Peckham Level. The area also prefers to reuse buildings in Central Rye Lane than demolition and reconstruction. So in my design, I was more focused to think of how to make changes inside. And also uses modular furniture that can be changed for different uses and move easily. Furniture will be used in the space. And considering the possibility that Peckham Level would be closed after 10 years, items of furniture will be able to be reused or recycled.

不只是块块(More Than A Block)是超佩克汉市集(Really Peckham Market)空间设计中的一部分。再利用位于中央黑麦巷(Central Rye Lane)的建筑一直是佩克汉(Peckham)地区一个特别关注点:减少建筑的拆除和重建而是将空间进行改造二次利用。考量到建筑的使用年限,在设计中思考如何在内部做出改变,于是决定使用模块化家具。家具可以因为需求改变成为不同的形态,并且很容易拆卸拼装,使家具被用于多种用途以及方便移动。为Peckham Level在十年后关闭时家具还能够被重复使用或回收。

Wood ︎ 木材

Although the space was renovated, the problem when it was once parking like ventilation and lighting is still alive. Plywood does not have harmful glues that have adverse effects on the environment. At the same time, it is renewable, recyclable and eco-friendly. Considering the site will only last for about 10 years. The things inside may need to transport or recycling. The lightness of plywood compared to solid wood, makes it the material of choice for creating designs.
