The big roof slanted one-way toward the road is aimed not only at redeucing the façade volume for passersby but also at using the inside effectively as loft space. The angled wall in the middle is designed for vehicles to turn easily. Thejointer line preventing form mortar cracks is also designed as patterns making the large flat-faced building more expressive.
