This residential tower is C-shaped so as to make the best use of a tight urban site. The missing fourth elevation draws the wind, negative pressure pushing it up the void and cross ventilating the structure through the cuts made by the terraces and pools.

The dual aspect of each apartment has other advantages. It brings light into all rooms and creates what is probably architecturally the most interesting space – the void with its dramatic escape stairs.
