"Crystalline" In the depths of a cave-like space cut into the massive rocks that support the building, a dramatic common entrance lobby space was created where quietly sparkling crystals greet residents. The water basin acts as a boundary to the outside, when crossed, visitors reach a light filled space, with light seeping in from above. This is an expression of liquid dripping from the ceiling interfering with the light, creating beautiful sounds and crystals. This is a place for meditation, and a boundary between public and private.
