The architects chose to exploit the sea-fronting context of the site, by introducing a series of stepped balconies across the different floor levels, so the building appears to be shifting away from the busy elevated highway fronting the building. This allows the building to create a unique profile against the skyline, creating an iconic presence. The facade comprises windows, balconies and air-condition ledges, but the definition of each element is intentionally blurred by layering a series of horizontal stripes throughout the facade. The stripes generate horizontal visual movement across the building and emphasize the "shifting and stacked" nature of the different volumes. A palette of varying grays is employed to generate the variety of tones required for the "horizontal banding". This horizontal striping is also applied consistently to the landscape and hardscape elements surrounding the building.
