In addition to the natural landscape characteristics of the area, Afgan Islamic monastery which is located close to the energy transfer centre and protected/internalized by local people is an inspiring figure with its natural stone material. This inspiration brings along a contemporary interpretation to the project. Starting point of the project arise from a simple rectangle form. Concrete structure being utilized on façade and apart from the carrier system of the structure, natural stone is put into use on the separating walls outside of the carrier system located upon the upmost floor level.

Rainwater draining downpipes consist of cooper material. The roof is a terraced roof with reinforced concrete material. Energy transfer room and electric distribution main rooms function as a vital structure for the area.
