This means a reduction in terms of air heating and cooling and also artificial lighting requirements, resulting in extremely low energy costs for the owner and of course for the planet. And from the other side, design has incorporated economic and warm materials such as brick and wood which led us to a culture-base architecture.

Sliding panels made of wooden slats, not only provide an ever-changing image of the building on the outside, they also act as a solar filter to create stunning effects of changing light and shade and enable the user to control the amount of sunlight that flows into the interior spaces.
