What is unique or complex about the project?

Being that this building corners a park and a walkway meant that installing posts on the ground floor was out of the question. We had to design and get custom made posts made to be fitted to the existing structure of the house. This in itself was no walk in the park being that the building is stucco clad trying to work out where suitable fixings were was difficult and house plans gave nothing away. Due to its exposed location I didn't want to protrude anything up to high but also had to be mindful not to minimize headroom and 'close' in the area that was needing to be covered.
