why "art code" ?

In architecture, the facade of a building is often the most important from a design standpoint, as it sets the tone for the rest of the building. Art code is now being used by a new generation of architecture designers to explore innovative ways of generating form and translating ideas in a wide range of creative architectural disciplines

The façade is composed of a repeated geometric module. By staggering the placement of the modules on each floor, larger forms coagulate to give an effect that is both repetitive and seemingly random or free.
A degree of relief is included in the facades. This stands in opposition to the two-dimensionality that is often encountered in office facades. This relief also increases the articulation of the geometric compositions by creating a separation between the outer layer of light coloured, matt natural anodised aluminium forms and the inner layer of glass and dark, glossy metal.
The sense of identity that the façade affords is not only an exterior effect. As a result of the diagonal lines and varying sizes of the modules, there are four different window forms. These give a playful feel to the large open office landscapes inside as well as providing a varying factor for smaller rooms along the façade.
