The complex comprises of two independent blocks of flat in the shape of a wedge, which enclose a courtyard with a garden between them. Both buildings conceal a total of 53 flats for rent of various sizes and a store on the ground floor. The atypical shape of the buildings is also based on the daily movement of the sun through the sky. Thus the buildings are shorter where they would otherwise cast a shadow and are taller where they do not restrict the penetration of the sun and can be fully exposed to it.
