We set out to integrate into our design the structure of the earth while echoing the natural forces shaping the hills, strata/soil, and spring water found therein. The exterior of the building is layered in a gradation of stacked blue and green strata and faults. Illuminated polygonal recesses dot the entirety of the ceiling and walls of the entrance hall and inside them can be found curving recycled aluminum sheets evoking the flowing water of a spring, thus revealing natural motifs representing small hills, sections of sloping strata, and the freshness of spring water.
