From the architect. The basic challenge was how to develop a project that maximised the small lot, optimizing the number of units and other areas, while generating an architectural language that was unique within its sector. The key design ideas were to obtain flexibility and cost effectiveness, within a contemporary and unique building (thus mitigating the disadvantage of a project with few sellable units, as a result of the site). 

The potential buyer was offered choice, as the building accommodates / subdivides into varying apartment modules (in both horizontal and vertical planes), ranging from one bedroom units to three bedroom apartments.
