From 2nd Floor, the architects dispose a big void in the center and apartments on the two surrounding sides connected by concrete corridors - steel staircases & lift glass box. The void with green trees in this part help increase the nature light intensity and also highly appeal people & surprise. The dining room with kitchen creates a more spacious area for customers to cook by themselves or to have a party.

All the apartments are equipped with adequate modern conveniences. The nature lights and house plants are placed inside the room; however, they still maintain privacy and individual. Although the construction materials are rather usual, they have been elaborated aesthetically, for example, waxed concrete, wall painting, white-painted brick, etc. They are quite simple methods but useful to bring beauty and keep plausible investment cost.
