Local stone and copper, historic building materials, and vegetation chosen for to provide cool shade for an arbour, scenting the air with jasmine and camellia. Materials are simple and noble at the same time.
The materials relate to the passage of time, with different cycles, creating new forms, new colors, new textures. An initial tension between cold stone/hot metal, rough stone/smooth metal, matt stone/shiny metal. follow softness of the foam on the stone, green oxidation of copper, plant growth.
A place that celebrates the passed life and which brings the hope of future ones. Materials united in a common ageing, a building that lives and shelters life ... for everyone.
