The eastern side has a green courtyard from a preschool and King Peter’s house, built in the 19th century.

Light is strategically placed in rooms for changing visual effects during the day, following bioclimatic principles.

The designer uses light materials with warm and cool colours to create a cheerful, elegant, and relaxing atmosphere.
