Description Change this

When first visiting the original site, we started by exploring the immediate forest surroundings. Given it was a warm summer day, the contrast between the heated temperature of the buildings and the cool entrance of the forest was striking.Our concept was thus developed to eliminate these striking contrasts.

It is illustrative of the forest as a workplace, making the connection between the two as seamless as possible through heavy use of transparent elements in the structure, so as to accentuate the surrounding environment from the inside. This led to the formation of a central space from which the building branches out into a forest, and the forest back into the building.
