Description

An inner core and eight large pillars embedded in the facade support the tower, freestanding on its podium. The open floor plan allows a free division of the surface for different workshops. Sanitation is grouped around the pillars to have natural ventilation. The podium fills the parcel’s surface and provides parking on two floors. The ground floor provides direct access to the underground MTR. The large vertical pillars cut the strong horizontal expression of the small section windows in the facade clad with white mosaics and widely placed AC units.
