The concept for this project involved taking a pure cube form and carving into it, creating an internal courtyard and landscaped terraces for the inhabitants. The structural concept combines strategically located concrete cores and an exoskeleton that allows for a flexible, column free internal office space.
Carved out openings through the form are oriented to capture the prevailing wind. The exterior expression of the building, featuring a diamond shaped structural frame, is a direct result of the overall massing and structural concept for this project.
