Finalising Form and Site

I decided to keep with the "grasping" elongated form of the building, but add two rooms on either end of the corridor. This allows not only just for the pacing effect, but also a transition from a potentially dark, enclosed to space, to one where the light is bright and glaring. I've decided to place the site on a salt pan or flat, white desert, to emphasise the isolation of the site. This also has implication for the quality of light.

The site plan and elevation shows the proximity of the servants quarters to her place of work. Her place of work will be represented simply as a big massing, more a conceptual, abstract building than a real one. The proximity shows how the larger massing overpowers and bears over the much smaller massing.
