It looks like there is a multi-storey glass atrium right at the top. I wonder if that will be the board room, or what its function will be.



It'll make a great observation deck.

great pictures too, ENDOPHINS! Your pics look better and better each time! keep it up!
no offense ... but im not so sure if the design coming from 1 single architect ...
coz the design is not very uniform...

using endophins pics ...

the lower tower has curvy wall with sharp corner ...
but the taller has flat wall with rounded corner ...
the facade treatment is so different ...

n again ...

the way they finish the "potential observation deck" is very different from that of those wings.

n the skybridge kinda look out of place ...
it could hv been bolder n more visible ... instead of so tiny n small ...
just my opinion ...
(im just brainstorming what my professors might comment if i turn in sth like this for studio...)

the design of the building just lacks the kind of coherence like ifc 1&2 ... or like the whole pacific place ...

I LOVE it!

I saw it when I stayed at the Panda Hotel January last year and was really amazed.

It is located in Tsuen Wan, which is in the northwestern corner of Kowloon - away from the typical CBD areas.
