The most important feature of the apartments in both architectural and functional terms is the presence of a veranda in each unit. This small, closed-in but visually permeable space is intended for actual use, with blinds to create shade and plenty of ventilation.
Ventilation is provided by side panels with holes in them to allow air to flow through and cool down the apartments in summer. In addition to these, each balcony is fitted with air conditioning containers. The unusual blinds are intentionally semi-transparent, to offer tenants views of the bay while at the same time protecting their privacy.
