Urban Balcony 3- a perspective render. - Cham Zheng Chee
Like a balcony, it possess contemplative means, gravitational gestureS, and perhaps an out-of-body experience; with all in a singular experience.
Urban Intervention of Interstitial Spaces. - Cham Zheng Chee
Like a balcony, it creates a vast continuum of space with the city- awakening of the juxtaposition between the wide grasp of the city and the speckle of present self, translated in the vessel of an elevated pedestrian bridge against the city.
The design proposal revitalizes one of the abandoned interstitial spaces in the city. The space shares the same railway line adjacent to the market space which allowed the liminal space within the urban realm to be continued. The façade facing the Bridgegate street is retained as the frame from its past. The pedestrian bridge along the railway stems towards the edge environment along the river, propelling human flow from the city centre.

The intertwining of human activities explores the mutual spillage spaces of the streets and the river, accentuating liminal experiences within the urban space
Urban Intervention of King Court Market. - Cham Zheng Chee
The balance of retaining and subtracting the existing structures introduces a channel of movement through the space, and then into the urban realm. The layers of urban depth in the designed liminal spaces diversify the various spatial divisions within the market, through the transition of conflicting polarities amongst the introduced in-between spaces.
Urban Balcony 1- a perspective render. - Cham Zheng Chee
The entry of the Clyde promenade distributes the pedestrians in the form of an extensive urban balcony, a gradual gradient that eases into the site while distilling the permeable edges of the riverfront urban space that interacts with the adjacent building as well as the liminal spaces surrounding it.
