The building’s form is a cantilevered volume clad in stone panels with a courtyard at the base of a huge void. The majority of the floor plates are L-shaped and open to the north so that offices on both sides of the courtyard have clear glazing protected from solar gain by the building itself.
The building retains a square base for eight storeys, comprising a two-level conference centre, 350-seat auditorium, banquet hall for 100 people and a car park. At the ninth level the staff dining room and communal cafeteria open out onto a landscaped garden, bordered on two sides by the upper storeys.
High above the garden space is a board room which hangs suspended in the uppermost storeys, visible from the street far below. The two top floors are reserved for executive offices and share the same square footprint of the lowest eight levels, with executive offices and meeting rooms at the perimeter, lounge and informal spaces set in an inner ring, and the board room in the centre.
The glass facades of the building capture daylight and limit solar gain through a sophisticated series of horizontal and vertical shading devices that articulate the building’s primary facades. The design mitigates glare without obscuring views of the surrounding cityscape, including the Burj Khalifa to the east.
