Through the inverted pyramidal form, the building managed to reduce the solar heat gained by the building by reducing the surface exposed to the sun. The cantilevered structure protects the pedestrian and communal spaces below from direct sunlight, creating a shady and a comfortable environment for the communal space and pedestrian area at the ground level. The slanted curtain walls of the building also allow a wider visual interaction between the occupant and their environment - connecting people from different spaces and elevations.
Through awards received such as Awards for Platinum Green Building Index 2012 (Malaysia), Asian Energy Award 2012 & International Green Apple Awards For The Build Environment and Architectural Heritage 2013 (UK), this project inspires us to always explore and invent new possibilities for the benefit of the people.
We always strive to make an architecture that can withstand through time; both within the physics of the earth- and within the hearts of the people.
