the underground bar

This is what I imagin about which atmosphere would be underground.
I think this is getting closer to my first terms work in terms of
light qualities.
Or am I going the wrong way?

progress so far

the axo doesn't really have a hierachy jet and the 3d file has far too much and on the other hand not enough information at the moment, I think the section and plan give more relevant hints of what it's about
maybe I have to explod it more...

As we talked in the last tutorial I have tried to evolve the plan of the plaza in different ways. I started with random processes leading by intuition and movement of people, but I realized that creating a pattern as a background can be used to compound the plan in a harmonious way. So I started triangulating the space and choosing different elements generated by the lines of the pattern. Superposing the ground level and the underground level I have developed different schemes of operation. The one I prefer is the option D, because it allows static and dynamic flows in the ground floor and also the entrance of light doesn’t intersect with the movements and activities in the underground floor.

Courtyard ideas

Just some ideas for courtyard extension. I prefer the third drawing with a larger courtyard to the right and clothing to the left. It seems to be the most intimate without being too small as is the case with drawing two.

Im beginning to thing 9m wide is too big for the commercial block, that it would just be normal sized instead of small and stacked up. would 6m wide be too thin? considering i have to include storage/staff/public facilities aswell? Help?

Block One Layout

Block One in comparison with Pentonville road. The original path width was more or less 3m, with the addition of block one the pavement is expanded to 'hug' the buildings first floor outline allowing a larger area for the public and a posibility of creating a social space like the LaForet entrance.
This is the commercial block with 14 shops in total, it is 7 floors high to mirror the commercial buildings opposite, correct me if im wrong about that. To keep the building wall-like i have eliminated circulation space and circulation is through the shops themselves. So you would have to go through H+M to get to Topshop for example... Mwuahaha
Loading access is at either end of the block, I didnt want to add extra space for direct loading so this would have to be done within the shops themselves, is this a stupid idea? I kind of like the idea of torturing the shop keepers and having the 'shop workings' and 'shoppers' integrated.
