The various depths of the aluminum frames and the angled glass give an individual t wist to the rigid façade. The big glass windows on the ground floor are placed inwards the building, creating a natural transfer bet ween inside and outside and showing the living rooms and lobby space to the street. As an extension of this dynamic interior, a red coloured glass box marks the entrance.
