Top roof living is the main project’s idea. Composition makes a harmonious and local ensemble through transformation of existing fragments as a new unity. Ensemble: a powerful spatial configuration unifying contrasts, adapting facades, volumes, colours and textures into a painterly style or counterpoint.
