The façade offers sun-shading and the green buffer acts as a living interface between inside and outside. Every unit has a visual connection to greenery outside their apartment. A series of sheltered sky gardens, terraces, balconies and planters culminate in a breathable facade.

The first three levels are filled with retail spaces with 23 levels of apartments above them spread over two towers. The architects intended to create green intimate serene courtyards away from the busy street life. A biophilic environment within a high-rise context.
