Site is located on Sukhumvit 23 back of Soi Cowboy, The most infamous night life district. The shape of the site consist of two rectangles which are perpendicular to each other and separated the building into two towers. Sukhumvit 23 is flooded with people; Most of the footpaths are flooded with street vendors and motorcycle. The site is surrounded by high rise buildings with less greenery space. Since the site is finite and crowded, the solution is to widen visual and space to create better space for the residents. The concept is to blur the boundary line such as wall and buildings. By bending those boundaries, it will create more open vision. Not even the fence, guardhouse or seating can be bended to make the resident feels more relaxing. As the street vendors and motorcycle are intruding on the footpath, it causes the road looked narrower. To widen the walkway, pushing the boundary wall further into the site to share the space to the public, creates a better scene for the entrance and also be beneficial for the people walking by.

The rooftop of both the parking and residence towers are designed into a resting area where berms are carefully formed, creating adequate soil depth for big trees to be planted.

The greenwall on the parking tower accumulates up a total area of 400 Sq.m. Approximately ,It is capable of absorbing roughly 260 MOL of Carbon dioxide. Apart from inhailing carbon dioxide from car exhausts, it also blends and draws in nature , forming a green wall in the midst of a dry and green-less city. The flourishing greenness of the wall helps creating openness at the entrance and soften the narrowness caused by surrounded building on every sides.
