The exterior of The Archive is completely covered in mirrors that reflect the world around it. These reflections serve to conceal the space while maintaining privacy for the artist within. The building’s large doors are practically invisible, although an interior garden can be seen through a transparent wall and a narrow opening.

The interior of The Archive is a spacious corridor fitted with shelves and hooks for the artist to ‘archive’ his work. The records are camouflaged by the reflective facade [5], creates a secretive storage place for private work.
