The initial idea for the location on the plot was based on the simple idea of a P-shaped building that will be developed on the North – East and South side of the plot and will create a single interior, open space to the side of the west road which is also the street. access to the plot. Then, keeping the original idea of the inner courtyard, the building complex moves in such a way that it is oriented along the East-West axis.
