The design explores the dissection and manipulation of a rectangular mass to create a sculptural experience of space with orthogonal efficiency. Rotated and battered walls, deep knife edge overhangs, chamfered ceilings, and plays of light and shadow carry the angular, sculptural language throughout the design. Organized around a courtyard, the presence of natural light permeates all spaces. The long and low-slung roofline mimics the horizontality of the surrounding desert plateaus. The chamfered wall detailing surrounding the glazed openings provide protected access to views and light.
