The main concept of this rental housing complex is a new model of "Vertical Cityscape." The “71" refers to the number of windows of this housing complex, allowing each room has more than 7 windows. At first glance, these windows might appear to be arrayed irregularly. But upon careful examination of the size and arrangement, one will notice the relation to the cityscape of the surrounding area. It is, so to speak, a form of “natural clutter.”

In the interior, each window has long wooden desk or bench. The façade of the building is filled with various spectacles of resident’s activities. And then, gradually, they become a brilliant village of 10 houses, blended into their surroundings.

The utility core is placed in the center of the dwelling unit. All rooms are arranged around the core. The bathroom has two doors, so that it can be accessed from both the living room and bedroom.
