Perched on a hill with extraordinary exposure and panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, this office building was developed for a prominent firm of attorneys. Triangular in plan, the building exhibits a dynamic series of interlocking juxtaposed forms terminating in sharp bladed corners. Large vertical angled sun control louvres screen the strip glazed facades whilst promoting sea views towards the city and sea. A focal triple volume glazed atrium provides a counterpoint to the solidity of the block and this enjoys visual connection to an entrance courtyard space. This glass box is the tour de force of the building and is draped in a filigree screen and lightweight pergola at roof level providing a light and elegant entrance to the office reception
