The patterning of the tiles on the exterior of the building is based on the play of shadows on the site from surrounding buildings and trees. The tiles are a fake slate product that uses wood pulp as one of the main ingredients. Ceramic tiles, Anthony Thistleton notes, would have used as much carbon to fire as the project saved by using the cross-laminated timber that holds the building together.
