AE Interest:

-Built for a book publisher’s private art collection; the concrete form was inspired by a curled up cat; lighting comes from rafted ceilings which counter and contrast the curved walls of the structure [2]; uses a semi-complex marriage between a curved form and a rectilinear form to isolate the interior from the surrounding landscape and to create an open and interactive courtyard.
