The Opus includes two structures combined as a united mass, in the form of a “eroded cube”, with a free-form void in the middle which cuts through the structure and creates the feeling of an organic happening, going beyond the boundaries of the structure.

Reflective pixelated striations are applied on to the glass facade to provide a degree of reflectivity and materiality to the cube. While the cube appears full in day time and the void as empty, the night time perception would be one of opposites, where the cube appears dark and dematerialized, while the void could be activated with light, visible form a great distance.
