Having been designed by 3D Reid and built by BAM, the scheme features a 30,000 square metre landmark office building with 16 floors above ground that rises to a height of 72.5 metres that's been nicknamed "the sliced egg".

The building is designed around three cores set at the corners of an equilateral triangle with the office space arranged in blocks between each of them and an atrium filling much of the middle of the scheme. Convex curves along the main sides combined curving corners bend the outside of the building helping it move away from a precise triangular shape to something a bit more organic in appearance.

On the upper levels from floor nine, a large portion of the building has been sliced diagonally away as if it was an egg cut in half with a ring of light bronze cladding separating the inside from the outside. The advantage of this is that the upper floors reveal stepped terraces and aluminium framed glazing that shield the atrium from the elements providing copious amounts of outside space.
