Text description provided by the architects. The design includes 30,000 sqm office spaces and 11,000 sqm underground parking. User of this building will be Shell International SIEP.

The glass volume is a logical translation of the large program within the requirements of the masterplan and historic boundaries of a relatively small plot of land. The urban planning context and the in-depth plans ask for a large degree of transparency in the facades. In combination with demanding climate control requirements, the application of climate facades is a justified choice. The fire security of this entirely glazed building has been solved in an ingenious manner, whereby sprinkler systems are not necessary.

The use of high-tech climate facades and the very compact building shape are sustainable features of this building.
