In the newly built addition two strategies were developed with the focus on spatiality and light. By changing the direction of the building an creating and angle a more spacious addition was created. By introducing a patio and a skylight between the old and the new building, sufficient natural lighting was assured.

Three pivoting doors create the back facade that when opened provide a continuity between the interior and exterior space. This continuity is further achieved through the use of the same material for the inside and outside floors (polished concrete).
