Included in the design is a roof-top deck accessible from the second floor apartment.
The roof design, taking cues from the surrounding neighborhood as a gable form, a hyperbolic paraboloid at a diagonal against the city grid, to allow for views to the downtown skyline from the roof deck while shaping a sculptural open ceiling running through the entire apartment.
The house has a number of exceptional lighting fixture appointments including the XY 180 luminair collection designed by OMA. https://oma.eu/projects/xy-180.
