The design of the building was inspired by the shape of a tree, with cantilevered terraces that branch off the trunk, providing shade for the ones below. The terraces were also created to promote outdoor living and enable a new type of relationship between residents.

Each apartment boasts an outdoor space of at least 75 sqft (7m²), with the largest being 376 square feet (35m²), and with multiple levels of privacy and layout options. Residents of the duplex apartments can also easily move from one balcony to the other via the stairs that connect them.
