The basic principle of forming the ARBORETUM mass solution was the creation of a strong volume which doesn’t seem insignificant and overtaken by the large-scale neighbour office building. Contrasting this stronger urban facade the project opens towards the garden and forest through large openings. Within the greenery fingers are designed as “levitating” objects for maximum park openness and true maximization of the outdoor spaces surrounded by the nearby forest.
