The optical idea is nice, although that looks more like window dressing, as in: hiding a blank wall.

Although they aren't for permanent living, they are still very lively I can tell you. When I walked by last year the doors were open showing a big party with people on the balcony. If that ain't lively, I don't know what is.

Time to add a few Hong Kong terms to the dictionary. First up: the Podium and Towers Estates, or: the powerblock.

If the first thing you utter after you enter through the front door is "wow", then that's probably because of the wow view.
