    The mixture of textures mimics the surrounding nature generated the experience in the landscape. Slight variations on shape created by small twisting of curved surfaces, alongside with the rhythm created by the vertical elements, melt forms with context. The architects liked the fact that the fabrication process of the floor, as a sustainable approach, enhances the overall atmosphere.

    Melting textures from natural surrounding became the key issue to deliver inside a budget window. The excavation material became the inner pavement and was fabricated “on site”.
