It is within these louvres that the architect has designed solar panels to help contribute to the electricity supply of the building.

The end result is a strongly repetitive look decorating the scheme, and an overall feeling of solidity, the sharp corners aside, which will be have glazed cladding to give them a transparent finish. In between the sharp edges of the east and west sides and seperating the two halves of the building, ba
