From the architect. This multi-story student residence hall, designed by K-architectures, accommodates 234 apartments. The design consists of three separate buildings connected through a series of delightful external staircases.

The building presents a graphic façade that is rendered in black and white. The spaces created between the buildings were turned into garden spaces with tall and hardy vegetation. This creates a nice buffer zone for the residents.
