Text description provided by the architects. The 5-level central body of the project is surrounded by several 3-story wings echoing the smaller buildings already completed in the surrounding business park and designed by the same team.

The business park concept is maintained and features limited presence and visibility of vehicles at ground level through extensive planting and below grade parking, as well as rain water capture in a peripheral ‘moat’ which also acts as a passive security barrier.

The water features mirror the new headquarters both by day and night, and the single access point to the building is via a drawbridge which crosses the moat, met by a waterfall which oxygenates the moat water.
