In a building with many unique engineering and design features, the huge window on the north eastern wall is arguably the most amazing.  The suspended glass paneled wall allows mostly indirect light into the Central Atrium.   Sunrise, about 5:30 a.m. and the coolest time of day, is the only time when direct sunlight shines through the glass panels.  As dusk falls, the brass chandeliers automatically flood the central atrium with shimmering light..  Spanning five floors of office space, the glass wall looks northeast towards Kuwait City.
