Cleopatra's Kiosk
The new kiosk has been conceived primarily to establish strong visual relationships with the surrounding space, formed by the Victoria Embankment, the Golden Jubilee Bridge, the Charing Cross bridge and the river Thames. Functionally, the whole building works like a "variable geometry" object capable to dynamically trasform itself so to maximise the space available for customers, for staff and for merchandise storage. The building has been conceived to reduce its impact on the environment: the 90 % of its materials are completely recyclable, an "easy disassembling" strategy has been studied, the heating is provided by an high-efficency heat pump and a full thermal insulation has been adopted.
