Structure

The structure was designed based on rigid reinforced concrete frame and core that allows to transfer all the vertical and seismic loads through the facade to the foundations by 12 meters long reinforced concrete diagonals leading down from the third floor to a slab capital 70cm thick located in the first  basement. The proposed structure allows 100 % free plans to users. The proposed structure functions as thermal mass reducing energy consumption used in heating and AC for the offices.
