Structure: a concrete structure composed of a central core and a double membrane makes it possible to reduce the section of columns and beams, making a 60 story building appear very light weight, agile and dynamic.
Decks: the residual space in between the 2 membranes creates decked balconies with natural landscapes and ergonomically designed topographies, which enriches the living experience by an in-habitable in between.
Flexibility: by having a central core and a structural façade the possibilities in the floor plans are endless, including double height units.
Idea: our concept is based on the intertwining of modern cultures in a global time, linking the past and the future (2 membranes) unfolding like an organism, from the seed within. its free-flowing lines and expressive forms are sympathetic to the human body, mind, and spirit, and are rooted in a passion for life and nature that is expressed in this Iconic tower.
Urban public space: the importance of creating an urban public plaza that soothes down from street level to a -3.00m creating a protected pedestrian environment away from the streets and cars that is ideal for commercial spaces.
