A multi-tenant building for which the interiors were to be determined following construction of the core and shell and base systems, the project was designed to maximize spatial variety. In order to accomplish this, a secondary circulation system was developed whereby voids were used to connect the spaces of each floor in a looping spiral arrangement, resulting in a multiplication of potential routes, vertically and horizontally, to each tenant space.
