Views of the beautiful parklands opposite the main entrance are optimized through the use of extensive facade glazing.  The configuration of the entrance hall has been inspired by the natural landscape, reflected through the use of organic elements. A bamboo grove, natural stone blocks, and cascading water feature define the spaces functional zones to create a series of themes landscapes.  By limiting the use of the various surface materials, the subtle combination of jurassic limestone, granite and bamboo amplified the experience of the spatial landscape.  The result is a harmonious interaction between inside and outside, the elements and materials.
