In designing the facade, Often, towers are surfaced with anonymous curtain walls. It was a decision that the building’s design will be an attempt to relate to the architectural tradition of the area and to the low residential buildings of the city’s center. We surfaced the facade with modular system of white cement and designed windows that hint at the internal functions concealed within them.
