Structurally, the building is supported by steel and metalwork frames that are inserted into or over the brickwork portal. The interior of the apartment building features conventional finishes along with steel door frames, plasterboard ceilings and tiled floors and walls in some areas. The architects paid special attention to the way all these materials and textures combine and the overall result is a harmonious and well-balanced design.{found on archdaily and pics by Brett}.
