Our design blends contemporary ideas with the local basket weaving culture courageously providing a striking new architecture
This high end residential tower in Hong Kong is designed to maximise the value of the site, by building the largest floorplates at the greatest height.
Using the sites orientation, we have developed a form that twists to allow the homes to face the greatest long view distances. The higher units face south towards the harbour and the upper most units get a 360 degree view, meaning the units increase in value with height.
The building rotates its accommodation around a green vertical park. The terraces are screened by a series of vertical glass tubes containing Algae. Waste CO² is passed through the tubes which reacts with the algae and in turn produces Biodiesel which can be used to power the plant. The building is designed to ensure the highest standards of sustainable design are met and it is able to achieve a LEED Platinum rating.
