Color: We take the natural dull ochre color of the surrounding mountains and local built structures and enhance it by saturating this color into a golden braised surface…for the main metal work and features of this architectural composition, and desaturate this ochre color for the background masonry work of our composition to achieve a fundamental relationship with the setting of this project. By lightening the masonry through desaturation, we separate this public building from local private structures thus allowing it to become a significant public structure without creating a distraction to this beautiful valley. This lighter color echoes many of the stones gravel one sees around the site.
