I'm not 100% sure what you mean but try having a look at the 'Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank' building in Hong Kong by Sir Norman Foster. It is a very clever building. It has a shared central atrium flooded with natural light by sun scoops and glazed walls. I think it was one of the first buildings to really deal with IT well with raised floors etc.

I am sure there will be books dedicated to it and the 'theories' that went into the design. Check out some detailed drawings of the floor slabs as I seem to remember they were pretty bloody smart.

I hope that helps. Good luck.
