Functionally seperated subparts of the main boxes formed different levels of platforms. With getting contact with themselves and other boxes in order to provide continuity of circulation and meet the visual privacy and visibility demands of these levels, in meaning of floor level, occured an escalatory arrangement beginning from entrance. In this way, the connector axis became an element which reinforces the integrated situation by ramping and penetrating inside of the boxes.
