Structural Features

  • The new structure was built without closing the existing building.
  • The roof of the new atrium bears on the existing building. Special detailing allows the connections to slip laterally so the two structures move independently.
  • The edge of the large atrium curves and steps going up through the floors, creating a striking view from any angle.
