The wedge-shaped, four storey building on Roslyn Street is a pride of commercial builders, which houses a restaurant, a bar and commercial units. The tiny footprint of less than 200 m2 exaggerates the perception of height. The façade features glossy and matte, white and biscuit mosaic tiles, and casually misaligned windows that provide sufficient natural light, contributing to energy saving. Solid masonry walls are great insulators. The top floor, which looks like it has been pinched, is partially uncovered and hides a tropical roof garden that enhances the building’s green effect.
