The ING Performance Development Training Centre is located in the northern suburbs of Kuala Lumpur. The 12 storey building comprises 8 floors of agent facilities, 2 floors of training centers, support facilities for staff, as well as a 200-seat auditorium, library, branch banking cum customer service centre and a multipurpose conference room. The building's design is driven by two major factors-the need for a dual frontage and the awkward orientation of the site. The longer aspects of the building oriented east-west necessitated a careful articulation of the western façade to reduce heat gain and glare without sacrificing light and views. This is achieved by locating the service core on the western façade, while introducing a thick wall with deeply recessed windows and tinted glass. The three other facades of the building requiring less solar protection are clad in lightly tinted curtain walls with perforated aluminum metal sun-shading devices.
