The development comprises five blocks of buildings arranged in two defined lines. The first two buildings are six stories high and located towards the front of the plot, while the other three are situated towards the rear and have four levels. The arrangement of these volumes creates a large communal courtyard with a BBQ area, swimming pool and sundeck, gym, and coworking space.
