The ground floor as the public areas is designed to 'breath' naturally through the large ventilation that is provided from the holes pattern in some areas of the building. All space is centered at large void holes, which has skylights on it. Under the skylight there is indoor swimming pool, which also aims to lower the room temperature naturally.
