The breathtaking valley location is visible through many openings in the building, some glassed others open to the air. Inside subtle changes in the texture and color of materials and in the water movement and lighting in various pools produce almost infinite variation for the eye. Movement through the space produces a perpetual series of reveals as the angles and geometry of the interior unfold in a way which is both abstract and very formal.
