The design explores the concept of inside and outside as well as core and shell. That is translated in it’s fractured form which emphasizes in a cromatic way this idea. To bring this inside space to open air makes it a place where people meet, a meeting point, and also a place from where they can Access its public services.

A third building, not fractured, makes the idea stronger and enhances the contrast of the whole.
