In recent years diagrid structures have received increasing attention among both designers and researchers of tall buildings for creating one-of-a-kind signature structure. This paper presents an advancement to diagrid structures. The idea to develop and modify diagrid structure arised from the model of a foldable book stand along with arch action. The structure is designed as an office building of dimension 20x15x12 m. This structure is supporting only on 4 diagonal composite columns. All the other interior columns were eliminated and thus the space area has increased. We put forward a unique structure which is composed of both steel (beam), RCC (slab) and composite components ( columns) hence contributing the advantages of all the three in one structure. ETABS (2017) software is used for analyzing and designing the structure. Satisfactory result has been obtained.
