Cocoon is located on a beautiful hillside, which enjoys excellent lake and mountain views. The location’s distinctive flair stems from the exceptional park-like setting into which Cocoon snugly nestles. The stainless steel mesh enveloping the building combines visual privacy with restrained elegance, while establishing a strong presence. The bold standalone building embodies an innovative conception of interior organization and interaction. With its spiral massing, Cocoon may be conceived as a “communication landscape”.

By eliminating the usual barriers to communication, it generates a unique spatial experience and environment that unlocks a host of intriguing possibilities for interaction.
