The split design allowed half of the building to have a regular roof, while the other, is dedicated to outdoor space and a garden.

The design incorporates elements such as roofs, facades, walls, diagonal cantilevered structures, and furniture elements, all in a contemporary design that blends with the tropical surroundings of the commercial area.

The design of the structural elements of the building allowed for a seamless transition from the front garden, diagonally creating a loop connection for three tenants: restaurants on the ground floor, a bar in the mezzanine space, and a beer garden in between spaces extended to the rooftop.

Water features and plants add a natural element to the building and help to soften hard surfaces like stone and concrete.
