The new office building is located in Rhapta along St. Michael’s road in Westlands. The building sits comfortably on this site which is naturally flat. The ground floor parking has been suspended by 1.5m to allow basement parking below. The building consists of 6 floors of office space with a semi basement of parking, roof terrace housing solar PV panels and restaurant facilities. Two toilet modules, tearoom, cleaning closets and staircases and lift towers are provided in the end of the building, with one fire escape staircase.

Solar panels cover the roof space, auto¬mated low energy lighting illuminates work¬spaces and energy efficient computers sit on desks. Rainwater is collected from the roofs and recycled to irrigate the beautifully landscaped perimeter wall. The buildings is finished in a high quality con-mix render, with aluminum windows in a bay window configuration set around the external envelope of the building.
