We have interested in the connected overhangs of storefronts because the local urban image, the Veranda. The veranda always offer passageway when we walk in the city. It's just like a concret tree, when it rains or the hot day, a lot of people take shelter under the the overhangs of storefronts. This image become the unique city landscape in our country. Besides, we want having a plaza surround to the roundabout. So we lift the veranda which looks like floating.

We lift the veranda along the site boundry. The seperation also helps to save energy when this office building works. Under a bridge-like structure, we can walkthrough freely when it rains. Since the new type of overhangs is seperated with master building, raining could be two side falling down for fun. We hope the floating bridge will change the shadow on the plaza and road as time goes by.
