Material and its Properties
Local pinewood is selected as the material for the main façade facing the courtyard and is prefabricated in situ to preserve the appearance of the wood to be as natural as possible.
The design and materiality pay tribute to the local ethnic culture, blending traditional Moinba and Lhoba architecture with modern architectural elements, creating a contemporary building sensitive to local culture and tectonic tradition.
