The architects conceived the “unused” space of the project as public space or infrastructure that connects urban commuters and draws them towards “server spaces” such as art galleries, convention centers and concert halls. The entire development will link to the rest of the city’s Business District and infuse the street level with fresh, vibrant content.

A VRV climate control system is designed to save up to 40% of the total energy compared to traditional office buildings in Santiago. Focusing specifically on the worker activity, the architects made sure each part of the work day is improved through a connection to nature – from a meeting room to an outdoors lunch break. This impressive building is in the process of being LEED certified.
