The 2nd floor exterior skins of the building are clear glass in order to clearly see space and activities inside. The functions that need privacy in the building such as toilet, meeting room are covered with irregular brick wall and clad with stone to make them look like natural stone shapes so the resulting shape of the building is a glass box on top of stones.
