Its total area is 1500 sqm. The office complex comprises five levels of open office floors and one double height retail store at street level.
The main aim of design was to create an iconic facade to be in contrast with its surrounding buildings. The building facade is designed as a double skin facade.

The first layer is a double glazed curtail wall. The building south and east facades are treated with series of white color horizontal aluminum louver that is being used as sunscreens which protects the internal glass facade from solar gain.
The distance between aluminum louver profile with 5×5 cm and 10×10 cm sections are designed according to human eye level in siting and standing positions in order to provide the suitable view and pleasant light and shadow.
There is about 70 cm space between the two skins that connect to each other with galvanized catwalk.

There is an opening in facade louver at each floor level for both letting the windows to open for natural ventilation and for making the building facade more dynamic. In front of each opening there is a flower box with automatic irrigation which brings natural greens into the building facade.

The double height retail store which is located at street level is not covered by louver skin facade to create sense of lightness and make it suitable for having wide retail windows. .
