The walls of the structure are built from locally-sourced sandstone blocks, set between exposed concrete floor slabs. It is these slabs that support the vertically arranged concrete planters. Filled with greenery, the planters offer shade to corridors located behind, and allow the breeze to naturally ventilate them.
These artistic walls are inspired by the steady and determined hand of a sculptor, brought to life on a grand scale using modern technology, resulting in precise patterns that would be otherwise impossible. These modern textured walls are at their height with the interplay of light and shadow, which emphasizes their 3D design.
