The polygonal tower has been oriented in such a way as to optimize natural light and climate efficiency. Since the eastern and western façades get the most sunlight, the’ll be flanked by garden atriums that span the entire structure’s height and create buffer zones between the outdoors, and the inner conference rooms.

Energy efficiency is also a key feature in the northern and southern façades, which house open-plan office loft spaces as well as cubicles and private office rooms. The tower will be an ideal place for major companies to establish a European presence: in addition to it being placed near one of the continent’s most-trafficked airports, it’s an elegant, prestigious building that will be instantly recognizable around the world.
