The architecture has been designed to act as an interface between the weather conditions outside and inside, not as a watertight barrier, but as a membrane that filters and shares the conditions of the environment. The front has an enclosure that efficiently meets all physical requirements of the building - structure, filtering natural light, privacy and service-provider.
