Both the tower and it’s podium base have been considered as 3 dimensional forms in the urban context of the Precinct. The simple podium base, with it’s composition of varying screening elements and cascading landscapes, creates a soft podium edge. The floor plan, with it’s curved edges, provides a softer form of the tower aligning with site boundaries and reflecting the site’s shape.
The proposed architecture is minimal and timeless, with large cantilevered balconies, simple horizontal soft lines and cascading planters to the eastern and western façade. A simple material palette of white, painted dark façade and a landscape planted facade defines the tower.
