Heritage, Tradition & Cultural Progress

Based on simple, innovative and authentic design, the design philosophy centers around two essential architectural ideas. The first is to use the building’s structure to create a significant place within a site. The second is to be sensitive to the local culture—responding to environmental demands with the form of the building.

The project has an authentically clear fit into its surrounding context.

A Clear Fit for the Area

The ideas for the design evolved from our appreciation of the natural environment’s elements, which has inspired the structure’s cultural textures. In this way, the project presents itself like it has always meant to be there.
