The layout was carefully considered, with spaces separated by a monumental rammed earth spine, between those benefiting from the sunny northern aspect of the site, and those needing diffused, indirect southern light.
Passive solar and thermal techniques are used to maintain perfect gallery conditions.
The separation between lightweight framing structures and the solid wall is also emphasised.
As one moves between spaces, through the wall, the aspect alternates between the prospect of the Turon river, and sheltered refuge of the more controlled gallery spaces.
