Five hundred kilos of brass were used in this very complex project. The brass entrance gate acts as a kind of wall separating the street from the house. The gate is 10cm thick and it consists of three brass plates on top of which 4 mm brass segments were welded to create a unique patchwork look. The gate handle was formed by bending one of the corners of the brass segments that form the surface.
