The design of the Port Apartment adopts a simple modern apartment style. With a large part of the facade decorated with terracotta tiles, together with a regular rectangular bay window design, it caters to the aesthetic taste of its major consumer group, the young people. The building uses LOPO’s flexible brick slips as the facade decoration material, and the main building facade is wrapped with white flexible flexi-bricks. Red and gray flexible acrylic brick are used to decorate the entrance of the first floor. Brushed surface flexible flexi-bricks render a natural and simple feeling; thus, the characteristics of the relatively traditional British ceramic tile building are well preserved.
