Makati, Philippines

This tower is envisioned as a lively and inclusive addition to the bustling metropolis of Manila.

Strategically located at the main intersection of the National highway, the 59-story urban mixed-use tower combines a 5-star hotel and luxury apartments to create a dining and entertainment destination.

The tower’s program — which also includes a sky bar, pool terraces, terraced landscape with art and water features and a restricted helipad zone — necessitated a careful study of the tower’s structure, core and entrance configurations.

The resulting form is a very rational structure, dressed with bold balcony forms and a lively curtain wall design to create a new architectural icon for the rapidly growing capital city.

The hotel occupying the lower section of the tower is inspired by the beauty, colors and culture of the Philippines. There are two points of access to the hotel — via a double-height entry lobby on the ground floor, or the pool terrace and public spaces on Levels 30 to 33.

Above the hotel, 20 floors of private apartments and amenities provide an exclusive residential experience, and a concept restaurant-and-bar on Levels 55 to 57 offers unique views of the cityscape from 200 meters above the ground.
