The Social Condenser renovates and expands a two-story block building that will act as the community’s living room. Informed by the concept of the “public house,” classically an obscured and introverted diagram, this project conversely aims to balance concealment with exuberant exposure of the internal activities to the street, the pedestrian walking path and the adjacent landscaped parcel. The Social Condenser will become a place for the community to congregate, socialize, view artists’ work and enjoy the landscape vistas that envelop the region.
