Cutbitum Tower, born by merging two squared twisted elements

Architecture / Market News By CHAN Soly,

The void resulting between the elements gave birth to balconies.

The design of the Cubitum tower is born by merging two squared twisted elements, which gave an elegant double rotated façade with parallel balconies.

The original design started with a square geometry in which the edges were rounded to fit the north-east side of the setback of the side.

The 90 degrees twist of the square allows having the same floor plan at the top and the bottom level.

Unlike the other twisted towers in which the procedure ends at this stage, the element was mirrored to meet the required built up area of the sites rules and regulations.

The whole geometry was then contoured to have a clear between floors with a 30cm slab and a vertical circulation.

The void resulting between the elements gave birth to balconies.
