Bridging the Spaces

The interior of the cathedral is the most important space in the building. I would like to be able to make connections between the spaces around cathedral by bridging the two ends on two sides every time. The challenge by doing so is keeping the sufficient amount of daylight that gives the character to the interior of the cathedral. In the representation above, the walkway height is 4m and the width is defined by the existing openings.
Introducing these connections prevent some of the daylight enter the cathedral, to balance this, the old location for the tower can be opened up again, which can also become the "mountain top" for the proposal.
