Openings on the facade will provide fresh air on each floor with exhaust via the atrium. The exposed concrete structural frame will provide a thermal mass to help control summer temperatures and aid nighttime cooling.
Each upper floor will have a balcony with dramatic views of the Millennium bridge, Sage music centre and riverscape. There will be a landscaped roof garden with access to the general public.
