SDE 1 is an intelligent adaptive reuse project that retains the structure and legacy of the existing building built back in the 1970s, while introducing net-zero energy considerations and elements catering to the needs of a futuristic academic environment.

The deep-veiled envelop designs created a fresh identity that enwrap and connect the two adjacent blocks, creating a series of light shelves to allow daylight deep into the floor plate, these light screens also provide views and natural ventilation while filtering out solar radiation.
