Interior materials have been carefully selected to complement architectural forms, guided by principles of elegance, simplicity, and Japanese Wabi-Sabi aesthetics. 

The interior materials for this Mansion have been carefully chosen to complement and accentuate its architectural forms while establishing a profound connection with the surrounding natural elements. Elegance, sobriety, and simplicity are the guiding principles of the design concept. Drawing inspiration from the traditional Japanese aesthetics of Wabi-Sabi, which celebrates beauty by highlighting the rustic through intricate details, this Mansion achieves a similar effect by juxtaposing raw materials with luxurious finishes. The result is an enriched aesthetic, further enhanced by the integration of scattered natural elements such as vegetation and water features.
In the Podium, walls and ceilings are adorned with light plaster in various forms, with vaults covering the main areas resembling smooth, eroded rock surfaces. The use of plaster with a concrete finish accentuates the graceful curves of the architecture. The flooring is composed of microcement, creating a seamless continuity with the vertical and covering surfaces. In contrast, bathrooms and locker rooms are designed as intimate spaces using dark stone materials such as slate and basalt, complemented by gilded/brass finishes and occasional wood details that maintain a visual connection with the rest of the Podium.
This theme extends to the Nimbus volume, where private areas evoke the lightness of clouds. The flooring remains microcement, complemented by covers alternating between basic or decorative plaster and metal. Interior spaces open seamlessly to the outside through glass walls framed in gilded metal, enhancing the relationship between the materials and the natural and artificial lighting. Special attention has been given to the lighting design, carefully directed during the morning and evening hours to accentuate and define the architectural forms.
