The building, seeks to maximize views over the parcel, it is organized along 3 bands that intersect around the circulation core. These three bands, that accommodate and organize the different rooms, open up towards different views  and orientations, while maintaining a prevailing orientation in the northeast-southwest direction to secure maximum daylight in every room.  While the bands configure and organize the different housing uses, they also demarcate the different landscape zones, defining the landscape qualities of the parcel.
