The A.R.C.H

The A.R.C.H, stands for the Architectural Restoration of Classical Heritage and embodies ideologies of classical architecture portrayed in combination with the standards of today. It is thought that architecture is a representation of society, reflecting the values and beliefs of it’s members. The A.R.C.H provides of a general forum / exhibition space, a double height arched colonnade market hall and multi-functional lecture room. The elements used within the building are of classical design with focal ambitions to not only be aesthetically pleasing but to enhance the building’s experience and improve liveability in the local community. The order and aesthetic of the building promotes positive attributes in behaviour of it’s occupants, since architecture can greatly impact society as well as profound impacts personally. This is a key ideology of classical architecture, and something the A.R.C.H program harnesses in its design.
