From the architect. The idea was to have two stories of a different kind of building.

The concept was born out of the wrist movement when scribbling on paper. The area allowed for building was very long and narrow due to multiple restrictions. We began piling the rooms in one row at one end until we met the border; then we turned the room itself backwards and that is how the building obtained its current form.

The turning room does not seem to have an end. The intersections between the floors and ceilings are unexpected. In some places the spaces are very simple, and in other places pretty messed up.

The building is covered in aluminium on the exterior, the interior has been designed with plywood and other board materials. The result is a tangled up building or safety pin, that can spread itself out any moment.
