Bole Road is full of freestanding blocks with un-noticeable entrance points. The Nile Source building is carefully designed with a clear entry to the complex. The entire block opens up and welcomes visitors. The recess gradually closes up on the above floors and reclaims back the space; forming a dynamic and iconic image.

The site in reality has only one face; the three sides enclosed by other plots and buildings. It is important, therefore, that this open front side be ingeniously exploited for image and access, which this project strongly addresses.
