The lower floors come in varying kinds of outside spaces with plant bins built into the railings.

The higher floors, above any obstructed views, have terraces that become big panoramic screens with winter gardens protected from winds and bad weather.

The script is honed and simple. The building reflects an image of great sobriety.

Site Plan

Encased in light-coloured metal sidings, the façades catch the light in a constantly changing play of reflected light. Work on the skyline introduces variations in forms and varying ownership of the roofs.
