Description

The construction is a two storey steel frame with precast floors. The external materials penetrate the inside of the building in order to truly reflect a solid element. A decision was made to separate the accommodation over two floors, which allowed for a much more compact floor plate, resulting in a larger area of natural landscaping to be retained around the project.
