The architects said, “Every garden has its own character and presence. This presence can not felt through images but only through experience. We want to approach design as a way to preserve and enhance what is present. Adding layers of characters and sensations without altering the true essence of the site.”  

So architects decided to create architecture that makes a bond and blends well with nature and its surroundings. It has special features that mix lightness, hiding, and penetration.
