The concept  to embody ‘Infinite Living – The Point of Life,’ tying in with the prediction that it will be awarded a Green Building Index Platinum certification.

The design incorporates a curvilinear balcony, providing shade at the interior spaces, while the extensive landscaping will limit solar radiation and heat gain. Water features, such as the rainwater harvesting system, will reuse and store water for the needs of the irrigation system.

Each of the towers will be topped by a Sky Garden and all will be connected by the Sky Bridge, Malaysia's first of its kind, serving as a means of connection and site for outdoor activities.
