“Architects in the past have tended to concentrate their attention on the building as a static object. I believe dynamics are more important, the dynamic of people, their interaction with spaces and environmental condition.”
– John Portman

Building materials are almost all covered by brick paste to give the impression of a warm. The use of wood provides a touch of natural elements and harmony with nature.
Part basement as if a stage for 2 pieces of mass beam on it. Both the mass of the beam that serves as a work space and lounge are placed parallel, elongated in the direction of the axis of the West – East.
