Hard on the outside, but soft on the inside. The closed outer side shelters the office spaces from the Indian sun, heat and impoverished environment. The solar collectors on the roof provide energy and protect the terraces on the receded roof levels from the sun.
A cool pond with aquatic plants lies like an oasis in the soft interior. The sound of flowing water and the reflection of the quiet pond create a pleasant climate that pervades through the large tilted windows far into the office wings.
The internal streets are for pedestrians. Cars have to drive around the building to the ramp at the back to reach the two-story parking garage under the building.
