The main concept was to subdivide the floor plan into individual valuable entities to create a better commercial experience throughout the project. The Crystals were taken as the main inspiration for the design of the complex to create an iconic building inside the New Capital. With its ultra-modern design approach, the crystallized towers act as a landmark for the administrative area.
Environmental treatments were taken to lessen the effect of the southern elevation on the indoor environment. The panels where designed so that each panel would act as a self-shade for the interior space.
