The building is articulated by 2 staggered and cantilevered cubes comprising the 2 single flats. The building also accommodates 2 family flats. By integrating all technical services into the central spine, the floor plans are freed up for maximum flexibility of use. The load bearing walls are in exposed concrete demonstrating the structural rationale. The penthouse is designed for full accessibility. High quality materials such as Jura stone, oak and exposed concrete are left in their natural untreated state.
