The design of the building conceptually focuses on the regeneration of an iconic structure – maintaining the spirit of the original building while infusing the envelope with the life of a new entity that is simple in aesthetic intent, whilst attempting to be energy efficient. Green principles were imperative to reinvent the building’s thermal comfort and energy efficiency and so achieve a holistic solution to the working environment, earning it a 5 Green Star rating.
