The location created some problems and, in order to make the new structure naturally integrate into the landscape, the team decided to create a more open design. The structure is composed of a square shed and the office building. The client had some specific requests for the office building. E wanted it to be designed with a central double-height void with skylights from where distribution galleries spread in different directions, allowing access to the other rooms.

The area is surrounded by mountains so the views and very beautiful and don’t need further introduction. Moreover, the open structure of the office building makes the transition between interior and exterior spaces smooth and less striking. The building is an eye-catching appearance in the area, where most of the surrounding structures have a more quiet and traditional design. Nevertheless, the team of architects working at the project tried to integrate the new structure as naturally as possible and not to make it stand out too much, so it wouldn’t create a big contrast.{found on archdaily}
