A 15 storey tower in the central business district and afforded spectacular ocean views houses a single commercial establishment per floor. The tower`s body skews itself to the city-grid in consideration of solar orientation, panoramic views. The floor plates are stretched out of the tower in alternate directions to create double height outdoor terraces on the each floor. The terraces are the iconic silhouette of the tower; they allow the user to refresh and experience the tropical climes and the ocean breezes. The glazed body of the tower is protected from solar gain and glare by a second skin in the form of a stainless steel mesh with a veil like reflective presence. Solar protection will lead to 18 to 22% power saving. Service cores act as structural mass and deliver clean floor space allowing clean penetration of natural light. The base of the tower is faced in bottle green granite and the triangular shift between the tower and the city grid is occupied by a water feature which is in fact an open fire sprinkler reservoir. A 60 feet cascade will resonate and aerate this water body.
