From the Architects: an utmost respect for the natural qualities of the site adapts the building to the space, left by the tree clusters of the existing forest. The municipal regulations in height and maximal roof inclination build a faceted volume of non-Cartesian geometry, absorbing the topography with interior half-levels. Each program is hosed in several "specialised fingers", recognisable in the volume and keeping familiar inner spatiality. The envelop transforms according to the proximity of the trees and their shading possibilities related to the interior programs. Sliding along the upper floors a strange feature with iridescent polycarbonate structure holds all lighting systems and a collected mass of tiny inhabitants.
