Located beside a very busy thoroughfare, this project will hold the challenge of being able to draw light and air to all areas in the building interiors without letting in noise and dust. Such an inherent design challenge will dictate form and function. In addition, the building traffic flow has to be fluid, self-contained, and independent from the highway. Servicing amenities shall be zoned to be less intrusive.
There’s also this challenge of being able to design a self-cleaning facade considering the relatively higher amount of air particulates. Water stains, grime, and discoloration is a common issue among buildings exposed to fumes and engine exhaust.
