The design concept of the apartment buildings uses smooth rotation of the floor plates to maximize the views towards the beach and thus create movement and rhythm that complement the environment. All the apartments have balconies that continue with the forms of the buildings and connect with the communal spaces. It also presents good social spaces and functional adaptations for the good living of the residents.
