The design criteria is to broaden the most space because of the seaview. In each separate space, the design team create long panorama frame horizontally so that the people inside can make the most out of the skyline. 

The weather aspect is carefully concerned which lead to the occurrence of deep and shallow awning incase of hurricane.

Choosing a boxed system and thanks to the capability of extended construction system, the view is broadened. Each box is exploited differently in terms of lighting and landscape aspect.

"By this approach, guests can fully enjoy the nature but the building is well protected from weather changes and hurricanes," added the studio.

In the project, the architects used a long opened corridor in landscape to extend the usage of the building which also improve the experience of the guests.
