The approach was to design dormitory rooms for less than 12 students per room, the standard for university dormitories and the introduction of private bathroom for each room. Open air stair and corridors are a must for this hot and humid climate. All dorm rooms have windows on two ends to allow ventilation. Window on one end opens to the corridor and the other end to the covered balcony.

The sculptural facade was created by the undulating balconies, a minimal adding costs in concrete construction. The deep balcony shields the glass window from direct west sun.
