The newly designed workspace, with its emphasis on sustainability, has successfully combined environmental conservation with the wellbeing and comfort of its occupants. The project, managed by ArchSD, brought together multiple stakeholders to create a workspace that is not only modern and smart, but also fundamentally sustainable.

The office features a quality indoor environment, complete with common and connecting spaces that are equipped with various CSR-oriented and sustainable facilities. A glazed feature wall enhances the space with a touch of biophilic design, fostering a connection with the natural world.

Furthermore, the office incorporates acoustic design and advanced energy-efficient building services like the iFCU, which manages 18 temperature control zones. These features contribute to an environment that promotes health and wellbeing, and earning an excellent rating under the IAQ Certification Scheme.
