The western facade is built with alucobond in the form of fish scales in order to circulate air and light between the horizontal louvers. The eastern facade is comprised of serigraph, sandblasted and transparent glass which block excess solar gain without disturbing the incredible view over the crystal clear Caribbean.

The double-tiered tower is connected by two high bridges that are also habitable, allowing for a funky bendy shape and solar shading. Flora has been incorporated throughout the building, creating a fluid extension of the natural surroundings at the bottom level and a pleasant urban roof. This gorgeous design epitomizes the future of smart, elegant mixed-use development. And did we mention it’s in Cancun?
