r connects the building to the castle, transparency mediating between opacity. The overall material selection strategy was very much guided by one self-imposed constraint: establishing a tight relationship between form and function. As a result, the inner-courtyard is made of motorized doubly glazed curved glass panes, the façade panels are not mechanically connected to one another, there is no flashing on top of panels and roof panels are cut to exact shape of surface.
Because both building sit at the very center of a gorgeous park, the circle shaped inner courtyard within the circle also relate to a larger context in wanting to geometrically encompass the land around and create a sculpture like structure that responds to the overall scale.
