The Architecture comprises of rich materials of stones, corten, steel antique wood, which allows for an opportunity in using illumination to express the depth of the materials and vista of its' space. Keeping in mind the requirements of low maintenance as requested by the client, we crafted the right light at the right place in response to it's program. Using simplicity to marry with an "outside in" of the Architecture. The feel of the space when daylight permeates and perform various scenography and the reversal approach of exuding illumination during dusk , lands a refreshing outlook. The dual usage of landscape illumination whilst, highlighting the trees and plants, serve as the facade illumination, to float the cantilevered element of the Architecture, lending a sense of lightness.
"The building and light are one, forming one skin, working both inside and out. Pure, efficient, impressive."
