There are a total of 15 three-room apartments and 8 two-room apartments. All apartments have west-facing terraces on the ground floor and balconies on the upper floors.

Internally, the apartments are accessed via a staircase illuminated with daylight and a lift. The basement rooms, common rooms and the shared underground car park are directly accessible via the staircases and lifts.
