The façade on the road front is entirely glazed, exposing the living rooms to the outside giving the impression that the building has been cut. The  clients  specifically  asked  for  a  building  without balconies, the most suited solution was to have sizable sliding windows, giving the impression of being outdoors by opening large sections of the façade.
