The design comprises a park-like leisure zone for outdoor recreation and relaxation and a sport and exercise zone. The whole green area is accessed by a meandering footpath that penetrates far into the grounds and passes through dense woodland vegetation, creating playful variations of light and shade.
The third outdoor element is the green, non-enterable interior courtyard, which resembles a damp, mossy glade with a number of tall trees and affords a year-round view of the greened area from the windows.
