The deliberately large scale of the entry structure is softened by the circular “sky hole” which combines with a modern water feature and feature plantings to create an almost ritual feeling at entry. The combination of semi-transparent screens at the entry with more solid walls towards the building helps to create suspense when approaching the sales center. The main water feature is combined with a brilliantly reflective sculpture of a dragonfly that creates a feeling of tension between sculpture and the surface of the water.
