To catch the most of the sun from the South side, the windows of the upper stories are turned at a 45 degree angle. The light reflecting off of the interior walls is directed deeper into the core of each space. Parking is hidden at the rear of the site accessible through a driveway corridor, leading to a sleek rear facade with a niche of balconies. The building now houses medical offices with natural finish interiors.
