A green oasis within the business district
One of the greenest office buildings in the business district, it is decked with greenery on every floor, and crowned with unique wind funnels on the rooftop, channeling air into a void to help cool the ACMV system in the building. A large proportion of the double-skin building façade is covered with living green plants to reduce heat gain.
