Laurus, with its sheltered, brick-clad courtyards is, in a way, a variation on the Falkulla theme. At its lowest point it links up in terms of scale with the low side-wing of the military hospital. Albus, on the other hand, is an adaptation for a tighter site and is more challenging from the point of view of townscape.
