The facades are carefully calibrated. The front facade uses operable waterjet cut panels that obscure the internal programs and thermal heat gain from the western sun. The rear facade facing the the golf course uses sliding glass windows that frame the lush green fairways. A deepened envelope overhang provides ample shades for the verandah. The product of such calibration is a finely crafted 'optic box' on the second floor, rendered in a deep brown iron oxide pigment and hovering atop a monolithic ground floor box.
