Veer Towers

Distinguished Building Award Submission

The design solution strives for simplicity and dynamism, reinforcing the iconic character of the whole complex. The idea was to establish a functional basis that defines a unique shape, which derives from a rational leasing span.

The building composition is based on two 473 foot high leaning residential towers. Main access and vehicular drop-off are located at the ground level. Pedestrian access occurs at the upper lobby level of the east and west buildings. The Towers’ cores and lobbies are planted into the retail base while the residential uses float above it.

The use of natural air and light is maximized throughout the building. Horizontal sun screen blades provide shading on the east, south and west facades and reduce the energy consumption while minimizing the technical equipment requirements and maximizing occupant comfort. Additionally, approximately 50% of the glass lights on all four facades are color frit coated vision glass which further contribute to the energy efficiency of the facade while imparting a distinct character and aesthetic to the design.

The building has received LEED Gold certification by the USGBC.
