The perimeter walls also have a tied rough brick masonry toward the exterior


• Interior spaces are spanned by 1,6m. tall reinforced concrete beams supported by 2,1m. tall concrete walls. • Concrete slabs (about 15 to 20cm) are mostly horizontal but diagonally sloped just around the tower

• The rough brick texture allows for relatively large tolerance levels, both on walls and roof

• The roof shape is achieved by the accumulation of material rather than by following certain geometry • Regarding color, the interior of the project will be in matte black/white/grey gamut: Masonry walls painted white, sealed exposed concrete, black stained hard wood floors, black porcelain tiles (basement), grey tinted double paned glass in curtain walls and windows


• Rigid insulation has to be accumulated on top of the concrete slab as if it were sand or gravel • Then a wire mesh and a shotcrete layer will consolidate the shape (same as with grade pools construction technology)
