The project is located in front of the local park which has a great role in formation of southern facade of the project. Some parts of the southern facade have been pushed inside in order to open a perfect view of the park for the users during the working hours. To prevent the sharp southern sun light the vertical louvers are used which makes the building look differently from different views. Similar modules of the southern facade form the northern facade. In front of the openings the wooden surfaces could rotate in three angles of 0, 45 and 90 degrees. Rotational louvers could help to provide relief from the harsh midday sun and create private interior space when needed.
