The building form was to be a direct response to its context – the railway viaduct on the west and the three-storey listed early Victorian houses on the east with street frontages to the north and south. The accommodation requirement was to create interesting and attractive volumes of adaptable living space based on an organisational diagram. The building comprises four apartments, each containing a main split-level living area on the east side and bedroom areas to the west, separated by the main stair core.

Each of the four flats contained within the structure contain a double-height duplex living area with an in-situ concrete mezzanine floor suspended from the floor above via concrete tension columns. Additionally, to the rear there are the bedrooms and bathroom areas separated on different levels, all linked via an intricate system of staircases formed in in-situ concrete.
