The architects of this project need to waken up. Proudly 6 different external materials in use...OMG!!! It is a reality than elderly require sunlight activated vitamin D by means of seating accessible balconies or secure external sunlight areas. Without these this project is already capital D for Dump. I hope that rejection is looming.
