The reason building has been designed as a green building during the conceptual phase, the highway to the south, 'Setia Persiaran' and the large rainwater reservoir on the east, played an important role in determining the design decisions. To enhance the maximum public connectivity from distance this southeast corner has developed with special care.

The use of a large, shallow water body at the ground level makes the building appear light, while also to celebrating the rain of that area. the avoidance of any typical boundary demarcations on the east, connecting the rainwater catchment pond and the surrounding landscape to make the building appear humble, while also holding on to its own identity.
