From the architect. Architect intends to iconic presence for the showroom in a street corner location within a new developed residential area. The concept of two pure rectangular volumes interlock one to another is to build a powerful geometric expression providing a dynamic spatial relationship and also transparent dialogue with the inner commercial atmosphere and outer residential surroundings.

The lower glass volume composed of all the service, display and selling programs. With most of the open space on the ground floor inserts another black-glazing volume by the west side preventing exposure to the intensive heat in the afternoon to be energy efficient.

Even though it looks nice, the project looks seriously over structured. And even if that whas the whole point, if they really care about an energy efficient building (as it says in the description), they should have thought about not over-using steel because it's has carbon footprint!!! I reckon they could have used 1/3 or even 1/4 of the steel structure shown in the pictures! Saving materials & saving money it's also sustaintable.
