To accomplish this, the Winter Garden design was planned to be a floating structural truss to express the shelter in an elegant way. Similarly, the two floor truss on the East of the building not only eliminates problematic columns from the tenant space below, but also expresses the open cooperative office that Macrofrim and JCN share. While aesthetic was a consideration, so too was overall function. As previously mentioned, the two floor truss is a uniqe condition that eliminates columns that would impede tennant space utilization. Also, the structural framing is organized such that the framing members over the corridors are significantly smaller. With more interstitial space in the corridor, many system elements such as VRF units may be placed without sacrificing space. In this way, maintainence can be performed on the units without disturbing speculative tenants.
