The concept is driven by the format and tactile quality of the handmade bricks. The repetition of the brick pattern produces a new contemporary entity with timeless appeal.

The soft, neutral palette and the detail of the interior are in keeping with the architectural concept, providing visual and emotional calm.

The project remains consistent throughout in terms of generosity, palette, light, and happiness.
