in its concept phase the building's form was influenced a single continuous loop, or a mobius
strip. the mammoth structure was softened into the shape of an undulating organic wave,
creating different views, sun angles and breeze flows throughout. the final design is still true to
the intentions of the original concept, offering various styles of dwelling units and many
opportunities for different kinds of glazing and natural landscaping.

dwp’s green strategies, such as precast concrete and maximization of local masonry, are all
included in the project. the architects produced a design that maintained good views
from all apartments and incorporated a number of sustainable details including natural ventilation,
sky gardens, green roofs and lavational shading treatments that will make the building very efficient
in terms of energy usage.
