The special design of the tile - a small wave that takes on a three-dimensional feel - brings a shimmer to the north side of the residential building, reflecting the sun from the south at different times of day. The white tiles help to reinvent and challenge the traditional use of white in Mediterranean architecture, providing a contemporary take on this within the wider context of the project.
