The design intent was to create a unique landmark building in the developing Sandyford estate which will establish a benchmark for future developments in the area.
The two major aspects of the design are the presentation to the main road and the unique central courtyard space. The main visitor/staff entry and reception foyer into the building is located on the ground level. An angled office element on the ground floor encourages pedestrian permeability and opens up the plaza towards the main entry through the landscaped forecourt.
The perimeter circulation walkways and vertical screen elements provide shelter and richness of materials.
