The office buildings for 500 work stations have a height restrictions for 19.9 meter. To balance the high density and short of building distance, the solution is to have an optimal building depth with glass façade to invite maximal daylight, and an intelligent sun shading system while perfectly integrated with façade system. The linking bridge in the middle reduces the construction disturbs for the existing building, and serve as public function such as reception, meeting rooms, library, post etc. The two wing four floor buildings are offices area for different departments. The open working space allows maximum of flexibility and communication. Telephone cabins and copy rooms are organized as closed spaces.
