pend·ing  (n) /‘pen-dinğ/:   (adj): being in continuance (prep): during; while awaiting
 Why ' Pending '? The concept of ‘pending’ is defined by the relationship between an entity and the notion of anticipation amidst the passing of time. That which is anticipated is understood, though not yet defined. In an architectural sense, such meaning may imply a sense of uncertainty, literally a space in waiting which, in order to be physically experienced, must be physically pursued.
 Positioned within a busy corridor above a pre-existing fire door, this intervention entitled ‘ Scaling for Solitude ’ provides access to an isolated retreat evading the pedestrian traffic of the AA. 
 Visible from above, behind a section of railing on the first floor, the space can be closely observed, analyzed, and understood, yet just out of reach.
 The site’s only approach from below conjures a sense of undetermined anticipation, a physical means of arrival, yet lack of an initial visual perspective. Out of reach or out of sight, this is a space awaiting interaction.
