The residence has a daylit cafe that occupies the west-facing part of the ground floor, while the second and third floors house a bedroom, living room and a small kitchen. The south side facing a neighboring building, features a clerestory which continues to the west, creating a flowing curtain wall. The wall features a system of aluminium louvers designed using PLDS (Parametric Louver Design System) based on an algorithm that calculates optimal position, spacing and orientation of each louver.
