Two elements immediately informed the design of this inspiring commercial building. One was the accommodation of the requests from the local residents and the second was the sun control on the building. In the first case, the building sits atop a podium that provides a welcome reception to the passerby and the mature planting of vegetation that was included in the construction from the outside. The sun control was handled with prominent louvres to the east, west and north elevations. The design of these screens play an important role in the performance of the building and its aesthetic.
