   Often the built environment and nature are seen as two separate entities where one can exist without the other. Our design, wall-lume, attempts to illustrate that we do not need to see them as separate; rather we can facilitate the creation of a world that supports the symbiotic coexistence of both. Our building creates a spatial experience designed to heighten our awareness of our environment. Whether it be through the two main entrances which create the sensation as though you are walking into the earth, the constant framed views towards the Meadoway or the repetitive walls that guide visitors through the building. Specifically, the intention of the interior is to exploit a dynamic connection to nature. One is meant to feel as though they are both inside and outside at the same time.
