The 1st and 2nd floors are for commercial shops, and there is no floor between these two floors, fine decoration shall be held according to the requirements after the sale, so as to avoid the waste brought about by second decoration. The flat type is designed according to client’s characteristics and this area’s orientation, the centralized air conditioning heating system is adopted, water meter is directly placed out of the house, and rooms are reasonably opened, so as to adapt to the changeable and flexible sales market. In the design, the building’s height is decreased gradually from south to north, and thus a slab-type building with different height is formed. The comparison between the red pottery clay brick in the exterior façade and middle grey metal paint creates a concise and dignified image.
