morphosis’ design for the 13-story structure features a high performance brise-soleil system on its exterior façade. by limiting solar heat gain, the building’s energy consumption is reduced. the interior building climate is also modulated without compromising views. responding to the brief from lululemon, the design aims to promote health and wellness by including access to daylight, green spaces, and landscaped terraces. internally, the office floors are organized around a full-height central atrium that delivers light deep into the center of the building.
