The site is bounded by tarred roads on 3 of the sides and a common boundary on one of the sides. Further to this there is an electrical sub station on the southern corner of the side which disrupts the rectangular shape of the site. There is a prescribed vehicle and pedestrian access to the North East boundary of the site directly in line with an existing road. In addition to this there is a 10m fall over the
site. From this access point the site is then organised with public parking at the top of the site, the main building in the middle of the site and then staff parking at the bottom of the site. There is also a separate building on the Northern corner of the site that accommodates the external service rooms.  It was a requirement of the client that the visitor parking area be on the same level as the level of the main building, to accommodate this there is a retaining wall on part of the North East boundary of the site. The main building is then organised via 3 main barn forms that run down the site these are connected to one another with a system if courtyards and sheeting flat roof structures.
