Sonata stands for a quest to find intimacy and protection from the sun through the essential elements of the architectural program. Taking into consideration dozens of similar products, Sonata had to be unique, but with a similar selling price as other multi-housing projects. An intersection of staircases in the main façade brings uniqueness to the white building, a canvas where shadows can be seen in different forms throughout the day; exposing vertical circulations was the answer.
