Structure in General
The meshes of the sunshades are angled to keep views to the ground open while blocking sunlight from the windows.
Because of the angled meshes, the sunshades can appear solid or transparent, depending on the perspective.
Extensive landscaping covers the building in order to absorb sunlight, create oxygen, and enhance the building's appearance.
At every 4 levels on the southeast facade there is a sheltered skygarden with overhanging trees.
In addition to the skygardens, trees cover the carpark and the penthouse terraces.
Creeper vines cover the blank walls on the facade, supported by special screens.
A double volume mesh pergola crowns the terrace of the two penthouses.
The mesh sunscreens create a dynamic shadow for the building, with alternatingly sharp and blurred edges.
Common features of the building include a water garden, several pools, and a children's playground.
Extensive use of sunshades, patterned panels, and protruding balconies adapt the tower to the tropical climate and minimize energy demand.
