Create the factor ||x-xk - (-g)||^2 where xk is the current feasible solution on the constraint surface and g is the gradient of the linear cost, i.e.

-g is the direction we wish to follow to decrease the cost.

Essentially, we try to match the direction d = x-xk with -g as much as possible subject to the condition that x needs to be on the constraint surface, i.e., d is along the surface's subspace.

The least-square solution of this quadratic subject to a set of linear constraints is the projection of the gradient onto the constraints' subspace
