The U-shaped building opens an inside courtyard with public character, while flat facades provide the necessary privacy for the residents. On the other hand, the 'background' facades have rather extroverted nature, with large windows and balconies towards the park. The balconies seem carved out from the mass volume, and thus suggest the impression of human scale. The alternation of these balconies reflects the individual units, while at the same time being part of the whole. The window openings are principally defined by the functions they belong to. The formal play has been generated by alternating the sizes and positions of the openings.
