The base of this building continues the basic forms of the surrounding streets and houses here, thereby carrying on the traditional images that mark much of the area. The layers are set back as they rise above the neighborhood, while the façade echoes the traditional four-post, three-space layout that typifies most of the old shops and houses along the streets here. The design allows the new building to fit comfortably into the existing buildings on all sides, helping to preserve the integrity of the styling that identifies Gueiyang Street with its rich history and integrity. Many of the local architectural features like archways are retained, and the scale and building materials are all chosen to maintain the basic cultural tone of the neighborhood even as the structure projects a modern image that acts to bring this traditional area into the present.
