The architects explain, “Most of the city’s inhabitants have been used to living in individual houses with private gardens and open spaces. As a result of this, the few high rise residential buildings that have been constructed in this city still remain partially unoccupied due to the lack of private open spaces in them.”

As a result, the architects designed the building so that each apartment, which occupy an entire floor, have access to multiple balconies with double height ceiling spaces.

The large balconies provide shelter for the interiors from excessive heat experienced in the summer months where the temperatures reach an average of 87 °F (31°C).
