The next three levels are typical floor plans, each consisting of two lofts, one two-bedroom unit, and a three bedroom unit. The top floor is intended for a recreational terrace and barbecue area.

The building is made up of two volumes. A cross volume containing the apartments, and a longitudinal one with retreats to allow views of the cross volume toward a plaza in front of the plot.

These two volumes are linked by a central core that houses the stairs and elevator, creating a courtyard 4 levels high.
