The 22-story structure would offer temporary accommodation to refugees, provide an optimal standard of living and enable authorities to document the influx of people and collect data. Named (SLICE) Refugee Hospitality Center, the building is made up of small living units that rise from sea level and run along the entire height of the cliff. Capsules can grow in height or length depending on the cultural data.

The design can be seen as a skeleton that allows different types of units to be added. It can also be applied to different topological configurations. One of the main features of the building is the fact that almost 80 percent of its total area is located inside the rock. Koulias designed the structure as a case study that has 22 floors and can accommodate 500-600 people per unit.
