Double Shell

The concept of the secondary light shell is to be placed outside the main building shell to intercept and dissipate most of the solar heat impact before it reaches the main shell of the building. The dynamic effect of outer shell is seen as in its wrapping round effect visual and thermal separation from the main building. Lattice of date palm branches, horizontal canvas strips, bamboo lattice were used to provide more shadows.
