The area where this building sits was previously occupied by an existing anonymous construction. This construction was demolished completely and leaving the space to a new volume. Due to this previous condition, the building design also comes in a half-finished appearance with a touch of industrial style that comes from the use of concrete.

This office and apartment building also has a concrete basement that shaped by the building structure. It generates a filter space between outside and inside, private and public too. It also identifies the ground floor cafe and main entrance, including supporting the clear block of bricks on top of the building part.

This building consists of four floors, designed and used as apartments and offices. The architect chooses some materials carefully that can remark the strong contrast with the project context. These materials also can recreate the new order in the building’s high-density area.
