    Big overhanging slabs of concrete = oppressive and claustrophobic, IMO.

    Love this. Great in a hot climate. Needs a few furnishing tweaks but I'll take it.

    I'd paint the undersides of those concrete leaves, or polish them, something to mitigate the fear they would come sliding down and bury me. It would probably piss off the architect mightily.
