The vertical proportions of the tower require delicate sculpting, a hierarchy of materials and colors. To achieve the vertical and horizontal separation of forms we created various segments on the facades. The combination of these elements allowed us to create an exciting, dynamic massing, even though the basic geometry of the development is a fairly simple composition of six square tower blocks.
All the towers’ massing respect the height and scale of their neighbors and the facades are characterized by deep bay windows in the white segment, individual square units with pop-out glass boxes in the beige and elegant simple grand openings in the top pieces, which take full advantage of the views from the site and broaden the elegant living spaces within. The carefully optimized planning of floor plans generated apartments with a wide variety of orientations and plan sizes according to the required apartment mix. Within each apartment, the internal organization is kept fluid in order to facilitate individual planning options.
At ground level, a two-storey podium building contains a mix of offices, shops, a supermarket and cafés and frames a landscaped courtyard. Kept entirely free from cars, the roof park forms the heart of the development and offers a tranquil urban oasis. Residents access the roof gardens via grand entrance points from various sides and the towers’ private access points. At roof level, the podium building provides a variety of recreational facilities for residents. Linked by shaded arcades, and accessible throughout the day, they add a further level of amenity to high-rise urban living.
