The open-air terraces on the second and third floors feature therapeutic gardens, where people may sit and chat, or take a walk among lush greenery, or enjoy gardening using planters with open bottoms designed for wheelchair access.

Simulating the humble form of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples, the design employs a series of concrete bent plates at the north and east side of the building.

The bent plates and the sign of cross at the top of the elevator tower are painted white to contrast with the light grey pebble finished exterior walls behind.
