The main client’s requirement was to create residential buildings of various standards and to cope with the climatic conditions (to prevent overheating and impact of heavy rains).

Buildings witch differently pitched roofs were designed with windows in deep arcades, sliding shutters, bright colors of the walls and wooden cladding.
