The main aim of design was to create an iconic façade to be in contrast with its surrounding buildings. The building façade is designed as a double skin façade. The first layer is a double glazed curtail wall. The building south and east facades are treated with series of white color horizontal aluminum louver that is being used as sunscreens which protects the internal glass façade from solar gain.

The distance between aluminum louver profile with 5x5 cm and 10x10 cm sections are designed according to human eye level in siting and standing positions in order to provide the suitable view and pleasant light and shadow.

There is about 70 cm space between the two skins that connect to each other with galvanized catwalk. There is an opening in façade louver at each floor level for both letting the windows to open for natural ventilation and for making the building façade more dynamic. In front of each opening there is a flower box with automatic irrigation which brings natural greens into the building façade. The double height retail store which is located at street level is not covered by louver skin façade to create sense of lightness and make it suitable for having wide retail windows.
