Architecture is aimed at pausing drivers and pedestrians, and even when passing, it is probably reminiscent through modern structures and linked to the cultural past. In line with this desire, the building is still quite street high and all rushes to the third floor. This is also the height of the adjacent building.

From the 3rd floor to the 6th floor, these modules will be mobile, with towering towers, away from the enthusiasm of the enveloping streets, and views of the mountains and cityscape.
