The NKDA office had to be designed with a hierarchy of spaces as it is a public building, with certain spaces required to be readily accessible for the public, certain spaces would be designated as semi-public, and therefore access would be more restricted, while certain spaces would be required to be private. There are water bodies to cool the surroundings of the buildings as well as provide visual relief from the built up areas around the office spaces, while the glass box waiting area is designed to be visually appealing in order to encourage people to enter the office space and not to be intimidated by an official hierarchical process.
