This can be seen on the blades of the walls between windows, the height of the window itself, and the lines of the balcony railing. Formal and rigid impression of a symmetric elements are refined with the presence of the glass box at the entrance.

The building mass is placed away from the front site boundary to reduce the bulky impression. The building is aesthetically more enjoyable from a considerable distance because the proportion of single large-scale buildings and the height can be seen in their entirety. Supported also by the existence of a city park in front of the site as a roadblock, the city park can be a space to enjoy the beauty of the overall building facade.The long canopy at the drop-off area is made to give the warm and welcoming impression. The canopy serves as protection from rain and heat.
