This wintergarden provides an outlook for the internal users at each end. These areas also have shared break out rooms for each level. These spaces contain meetiong rooms or common areas. The voids are surrounded by glass louvres to allow natural ventialltion to flow to the sky gardens and the communal spaces.

The facades are articulated with a solar screen. The screening consists of perforated aliuminium panels. These panels allow for the maximum transition of natural light, but provide shading from solar heat gain and maximise views.
