Given the tight nature of the site, and the minimal exposure to daylight, it became apparent that we needed to create atrium spaces with glazed roofs within the heart of the building, to allow diffused natural light to trickle down to all the working spaces. For the façade treatment, we sought to create a glazed surface that slowly twists and rotates to greet the morning sun. For sun protection from the morning light, a fritted pattern is applied over the glazing, which gradually appears after 4 floors of the building, and transitions through a transparency gradients to reach the needed opacity for the upper floors..
