The atrium is a public space that visually connects the offices throughout the levels of the building. This interaction extends to include the way office spaces relate to the outside gardens.

The first floor is mostly occupied by public green spaces and water features, with the upper floors used for office spaces. Smaller green areas are scattered throughout the building and roof.

These stacked gardens create a 100% green ratio, with the envelope allowing 40% of light through to the inner building. Solar panels will also capture enough energy to meet the Center’s daily usage demands.
