The building is constructed mainly of reinforced concrete with accented cedar formwork and steel frames to give the structure more character. Glass walls provide separation from the garage and shared entryway, allowing sunlight to enter the underground space.
The parents’ residence, a spacious one-bedroom, is located on the first floor, which takes advantage of the large frontage and balcony. The second floor is composed of the younger generation’s residence, and is characterized by a large skylight and private entryway.
