The building features a unique façade composed of a metal skin and circular porthole shaped windows, inspired by the nautical history of the city and the building’s site. The façade with its small windows reveals a clue to the structural frame behind, a reinforced concrete box with the exterior serving as a shear wall. By placing most of structural frame on the edges of the building, the interior was allowed to become a column free space. The structural loading taken on by the external walls then necessitated the smaller window openings. The structural design of the building was very innovative for the time of completion and had positioned Jardine House as one of the tallest reinforced concrete towers in the world. At ground level, large triangular columns serve as a load transfer from the external shear walls above to allow for an outdoor two story arcade space warping the building’s lobby.
