AE Interests: Flexible office space is achieved from having no internal columns, a glass curtain wall is set back from the outer stone facade, the depth of the facade provides solar shading and acts as a load-bearing element.
Floor to ceiling curtain wall, with load bearing skin. Load bearing stone and precast concrete facades eliminate the need for an internal steel structure. Forces flow from the lateral beams, to the facade, to the pre-tensioned piers.
