PEI designed this 125 meter high commercial tower to be a modern building of elegant but simple design. It catches attention by its all-glass façade and its unique geometry of a minimal but compelling shape. The typical buildings along Faria Lima Avenue are rectangular blocks, turning a flat façade towards the street. To break this repetitive monotony PEI positioned the street facades angular to the avenue and combined the cusped geometry with an efficient rectangular floor plan behind.
The angular facades create two small entry plazas along the avenue and the overall building shape addresses the unusually large plaza to the south and the drop-off to the north.
High performance in the use and configuration of spaces, in slabs of up to 2,200m2, provide different organization of work environments and maximum efficiency, with full use of natural lighting. Floors with free ceiling height of 3 meters and raised floor of 0.40m.
