The transparency comes from the lack of interior partition, as well as from the exterior envelope made out of recycled glass.
Inspired by a leaf structure, the second façade has structural role and it also creates opaque, semi-opaque and transparent surfaces, in order to meet functional demands. We maintained an element of the old building, showing regards toward the old architectural style while emphasizing the structural framework of organic inspiration.
Suitability is achieved by creating balance between the energy, atmosphere and interior environment quality and by using local materials.
