The façade of the building was stepped back to preserve long views along the road as well as limiting solar gain and creating terraces overlooking the city to the south.

The internal superstructure is formed from standard steel sections whilst the floors and cores are prefabricated CLT panels. As well as exploiting the structural properties of each, this system ensures fast and precise construction, maximise floor to ceiling heights and accommodate future adaptations.
