The building was designed initially by the SRS Architect Practice in Atlanta, Georgia, who wanted to give the building the green colour of the original Coca-Cola bottle. This initial idea remained despite a total rethinking of the building’s volumetric design and internal organization by Art & Build. The offices are laid out around two atria with major engineering involved for the purposes of fire protection. An interior street including shops, banks, meeting rooms, exhibition areas, etc. brings continuous life to the ground floor. This activity is perceptible from the upper floors and stairs linking the four floors. The interior layout was designed in cooperation with the UK practice RTKL.
The building was completed in 2002.
