  • The space of public use are located at street level, easily accessible for all while the private floors are situated beneath them, surrounded by the terrain. This distinct vertical structure not only creates privacy for the lower levels but also accentuates the clear separation of activities.
  • A safe space is created in a dynamic environment, which enables young children to feel familiarity without giving up life's exciting aspects.
