Facts

  • The tower's shape resembles an upturned cone and is clad in zinc tiles.
  • The tower was awarded a Civic Trust commendation in 2006.
  • The 9,216 zinc shingle tiles used for the cladding were installed by hand.
  • The zinc tiles age naturally, thus reducing the need for maintenance.
  • Floors with offices have a ring of glazing built into the facade in order to let natural light in.
  • Slatted vents are incorporated into the facade to facilitate natural ventilation of floors with plant equipment.
  • The cladding's double helix pattern is created by the drainage channels, making these simultaneously a functional element and an integral design feature.
