It's a fire suppression measure where in the event of a fire, sprinklers positioned at the top of each window will shower it to guard against failure. It's most common in places where the code-required 5.5m setback from the property line cannot be met.

I thought this building was suppose to be more of a brownish colour?

The lack of curved balcony glass and the minimal contrast between the bare glass and the patterned glass really kills the look of this project.

Sure, it's not looking quite at the level of 1BE, and curved glass + more balcony contrast may have taken it there. But it's still an excellent design with high quality materials and heritage retention par excellence. And most practically, it's a clear improvement over Mod/HP's most recent collab up the street. IMO, still deserving of much praise!
