Creating a spacious atrium
The concept’s biggest architectural gesture was carving away central areas from the floorplates to create a spacious atrium that would significantly animate the interior of the building showcasing human activity and movement.
This would further create a unified spatial connection between all the floors and allow much more natural daylight penetration into the center of the building.
Other notable design features included a reglazing of the exterior facades which would assist to provide a more human and transparent street face, with architecturally highlighted entrances, and a celebrated connection to the pedway system; an optional expansion of the building with an additional three floors added to the podium; and an energized rooftop with lively amenities including new terrace seating, gardens, half basketball court, and a water feature.
