Entry Description

The uniqueness of the form is due to its geometrical transformation. The ground floor (0 degrees) becomes, in the last upper floor, a 90 degrees twisted orientation. The other floors are rotated progressively in order to make a smooth twisted movement.

The twisted facade contributes to create a variety of interior spaces depending on the orientation of each floor.
The structural system of the building, based on an internal rigid core, offers flexibility to the floors. The activity can change from residential to offices or hotel.
The facade is full of glass and openings that connect the interior of the apartments with the terraces. The other side, made of titanium, reflects the sun all day, emphasizing the building shape through the city skyline.
With the aim to provide the city a non-contaminant building, the facade without terraces has incorporated several photovoltaic panels that generate the energy that the building consumes.
