Our project is located at the Withington Baths in Manchester and aims to transform it into a more comprehensive community facility to meet various needs. We plan to repurpose the basement to provide a shared gathering space for community members of all ages, promoting social interaction and communication.
Our design is capable of meeting the diverse needs and aspirations of the community by providing engaging spaces that offer unique visual and spatial experiences. Through promoting social interaction, communication, and a sense of belonging, our design enhances community cohesion, fosters personal growth and development of community members, and ultimately creates a better future for community members.
The basement of the Withington Baths is filled with a complex network of irregular passages or pathways, where it is difficult to find paths to existing walls and partitions, which inspired us. We plan to view the basement as a group of maze-like alleys and further design the space prototype based on it to provide a unique spatial experience for the community.
