AE Interest: Two identical layout, monolithic towers with different scales wrapped by round bodied diamond rhombus made from local larch wood that offers a variety of panoramic views. No new infrastructure for electricity or plumbing were necessary as the complex is connected to a nearby hotel that produces its own heat with a biomass generator fueled by waste-wood. Generous layouts with lines and forms that are clear and light provided by the use of natural materials.
