The skin of aluminium tubes is covering the wall and the roof. The diameters of the tubes are 40cm, 36cm, 30cm, 26cm and 20cm, and the depth of the tubes is 40cm, 36cm, 30cm, 26cm and 20cm. The skin protects the roof and the wall from the direct sunlight. The draft drawing between the skin and the roof or wall, cuts radiant heat from the wall and the roof. The interception of the radiant heat results a reduction of the cost of air-conditioning units. In effect, the skin keeps the temperature of the surface and the interior 2 – 10°C lower. The facade that consists of the skin of aluminium tubes makes the air and light naturally go through the tubes in both ways, so the boundaries of interior and exterior become obscure.
