The rapidly developing city of Colombo, Sri Lanka is a new gateway to Southeast Asia. This 69 storey development is comprised of 400 residential units with views of the Beira Lake, the Indian Ocean and the city of Colombo. The two-leg stepping structure creates a vertical cascade of garden terraces along its height, with a communal space skygarden at its peak.
The building is comprised of two vertical tower blocks, one leaning on the other. The leaning form allows for each floor level to have an outdoor terrace facing Beira Lake. Both the leaning tower and its paired vertical tower are planned with through-unit designs allowing for open plans and natural cross-ventilation to all apartments.
At the ground level, an arcade of retail outlets activates a waterfront pedestrian promenade. Restaurants located on a mezzanine level overlook the promenade and on to the Lake. The building is scheduled for completion in July 2020.
