The components established over water manifest themselves completely in wood, while those established over soil are wrapped in a cover of expanded copper.

Inspiration from architect:

The key signature design feature is “hidden” in the wooden façades: a system of facade-integrated folding elements was developed. The uniqueness of these folding elements lays in the fact that in contrast to the usually available folding elements, they can form a completely horizontal, passable surface. The infinitely variable adjustable folding gates also lead to a constantly iridescent overall impression of the building.
