To be more efficient we use a sunshading system for the south faced that remark the inside structure. A south-facing sun shading system makes the design more efficient and sustainable. The concept of "insection" - it's guideline to design the architectonic space, inspired from the factory process production.

From the inside, the outside is drawn by the modular part like frame of a paint, the garden outside on the other hand aims to give a softer landscape at the surroundings – creating a personal space where the users of the buildings can benefit from.
