The main access is on the eastern side. This access is produced through the area of the porch which can be closed with sliding doors just in case. It also can be used as an indoor playground, apart of the actual need of the space.

    The vaulting and the facade remind me of Dallas’s Nasher Sculpture Center and Fort Worth’s Kimbell (by Louis Khan). Nicely done.
