The most apparent quality of this resi- dential high-rise building is its waterside location. The unusual sculptural quality of the building is derived from the im- mediate requirements: as the middle zone of high-rise buildings is generally regarded as the least attractive, the form of the building reduces it to a minimum. The base of the building contains com- paratively large apartments with a large number of bedrooms. The apartments in the middle zone have economical floor plans while the upper zone that cantilevers out over the water contains luxury and maisonette apartments. With the exception of the maisonettes, which face out over the water, all the apart-ments are arranged around the corners so that they face in two directions. The large apartments even face in three directions and the penthouses at the very top also have interior courtyards.
