located IN A NEIGHBORHOOD CONSISTS OF DIFFERENT SCALES OF BUILDING, WE APPROACH THIS LARGE FACADE BY HIGHLIGHTING FEATURED AREA IN ORDER TO BREAK IT DOWN TO DIFFERENT AREAS TO AVOID AN OVERWHELMING MONOLITHIC READING.  by placing the highlighted area on the balconies, we try to create a sense of depth in these vertical pockets. Adding the side metal rods along the pocket enhances the verticality and help to activate the whole facade.
