City Center Tower
Could a standard core-and-shell building enliven a city street?
Bonifacio Global City, Manila, Philippines
Our design for City Center Tower pushes the geometric limits of the standard core-and-shell of a corporate office building. By introducing a series of concentric circles within the traditional rectangular structure, the design lends the building a dynamic street presence defined by a rhythm of bulging balconies. The result is a tower that blends structured and freeform shapes, eliciting both efficiency and playfulness while opening up views and daylight exposure for offices set deep into the site.
SUNLIGHT, VIEWS, AND OUTDOOR SPACE
The undulating façade design is a spatially efficient way of bringing views, natural light, and outdoor access to the offices set deep in the plan.
