On one side of the facade, the row of columns and the vertical sun shading windows are in the same scale as the existing shop houses with its 5 ft veranda.

On the other side of the façade, after the vertical sun shading window bay, the facade is stepped down to 2 storey reflecting the existing streetscape. As a result of using this design principles, the new building reflects the many existing corner buildings in this heritage area.
