 Set on a white concrete plinth, the black sculpture is reminiscent of a modern villa, yet the north-light roof construction has the character of industrial architecture. Concealed behind the zinc cladding is a steel-reinforced timber post-and-rail structure. Daylight enters through four north-light roofs, creating a diffused lighting mood in the white internal space. In this environment, the furnishings, designed by the architects, make their own restrained effect.
