This unique eco construction was formed from an industrial dock. The entire structure were made from natural eco friendly building materials, the glulam wood beams, made from a number of small pieces of timber that glued together. By this, the materials used can be reduced. The production of glulam is also easy and do not need great amount of energy. Also, glulam may provide lighter weight for the construction. The design was then combined with the unique swirling and curvy design, the signature of the architect.
