Taking an existing and currently vacant commercial venue, the public atrium is transformed using abstracted traditional Ghanaian textures, patterns and colours to become an active gathering space for retailers and for community events. The walls of the interior atrium are clad in hand-woven strips of leather while a coloured mobile is suspended through the centre of the space to modulate light as it disperses through the volume.
