"The logical song" (167)

We applaud the appropriate choice of the different materials used in the construction of this residential building. Without extreme positions.

On the one hand, the architects combine a light dry-constructed structure with a heavier and wet-constructed façade. On the other hand, they do not try to “exhibit” sustainability by forcing structural wood to be seen.

Each thing has its place and its justification.
