The design’s conceptual strength comes from the spatial and programmatic striations(a series of parallel, linear strips running SE-NW) which create overlaps between the exterior and the interior and between the various programmatic requirements creating a vibrant and creative work environment. The major programmatic categories are divided into the presentation, the processor, the nature zone, the work zone, social zone, recreation zone, transaction zone, chance event zone, instructional zone, etc. This technique provides maximum interface in between each striation, leading to higher permeability and interface in between the programs.

The internal spatial and programmatic decomposition creates a microcosm of the civic environment rich with the potential for social transactions. The morphology blurs the interface between the inside and outside within the site. The underlying principle was that “The work place should manifest itself as a more flexible and integral part of our life rather than a separate entity of specified hours of confinement.”

The design of the office takes into consideration the importance and relevance of energy conscious design within the modern work culture. The skin of the building comprises of 2 sets of planes – a solid set of planes whose primary purpose is to shade the set of glass planes. This ensures that despite a substantial amount of glass being used, solar ingress is only limited to the winter months when the air-conditioning system is not required. The reliance on artificial Lighting is also substantially reduced as courtyards are used to increase natural light levels on the floor plates. Finally, a series of terrace gardens provide a high level of thermal insulation.
