in addition to pedestrian, cycle, and vehicular access, the site will be also easily accessible via the city’s existing transport infrastructure. according to the design team, particular attention was paid to the sustainability of the project in terms of energy saving, the life cycle of the products, the healthiness of the interior spaces, and the harmony with the surrounding urban context. meanwhile, the use of local stone for the façades allows the project to integrate into its surrounding context.
