Text description provided by the architects. As an exploration into the forms of substance, the design was critical to realizing the "Rhetoric of Space" that the project sought to create. The ceiling of the lobby extends to the overlapping and flowing wall panels, giving the stone wall a cloud-wreathed effect. The contrast of colors and texture give rise to their own secret rhythms. Inside, gaps were deliberately left in the wooden walls to introduce silvers of light that complement the indirect lighting, forming a warm and serene space. The timber strips of the partition were curved to create a 3D effect as well. The rhetoric of space created layers upon layers that expressed the many possibilities of design.
