Text description provided by the architects. The immediate surroundings of the site consist of a software park, several high rise communities, and offices. High density housing coupled with the monotonous office buildings, the site thus is devoid of vitality and life, and was lacking any form of humanistic character.

The architecture has the intent of injecting a public space meant for the community to gather, and a green space for recreation and relaxation. The programmatic layout and openness of the architecture hopes to provide a sharing space that revitalizes the area and fosters a sense of community and sharing amongst the  inhabitants within this vicinity.

Landscape architecture was a focus in this project, the intent is for the journey between and among the architecture to break down the scale of the built structures allowing for a less intrusive space. Ramps leading to a plaza on the 2nd floor provides an extended public space, the buildings on the 2nd floor have a smaller, more intimate scale. The ascend and descend of the sloping plaza not only emphasizes a central axis, but also aids in the users' sense of orientation and provide a rough guide to human circulation. Amongst a highly dense urbanized environment, the architecture hopes to relate to the existing buildings, yet create a community space injecting character into the vicinity.
