Each floor of the building is comprised of two studio apartments towards the facade and an one-bedroom apartment on the interior side. These units are connected by staircase and elevator, and an inner courtyard that provides them with natural light. The last storey features terraces in the building’s front end.

The facade has setup of negative and positive space, which are projections of each floor’s layout. This setup conforms a grid of volumes and depths, visible from in front of the building. The front faces of the projections are made of glass bricks which filter light, providing both lighting and privacy for each apartment.

The grid changes at night with each apartment’s light on. This way the facade is an ever random, unpredictable and dynamic element that makes the building alive.
