Aerated concrete block normally used in structural wall framing was used as an accent wall element. fabric shade material normally found on school playgrounds was stretched below a blackened structural system to create a dynamic ceiling plane and allow lighting to glow from above. other materials included custom terrazzo flooring, pegboard, translucent acrylic, and lava wall tiles as the entry desk, along with stainless steel and glass conference tables, cabinetry and light tables.
