Facts

  • The building is comprised of six towers conjoined by skybridges.
  • Sunshades, overhangs, and walls of live greenery filter sunlight and protect interiors from overheating.
  • The staggered blocks of the structure's mass are oriented to let the sun pass through the building on its regular course.
  • The apertures through this building are meant to increase the strength of passing breezes and to cool the living units.
  • Sky gardens and pools occupy the terraces in the gaps between the tower sections.
  • The climate-specific features of this structure extend the innovations developed by the same architects on Newton Suites in Singapore.
  • The architects conceived of this building as a model for high-rise construction in a low-wind tropical climate, reworking the worldwide model developed for cold climates with high winds.
