Las Vegas, Nevada / United States of America
The design solution strives for simplicity, dynamism, yet reinforces the iconic character of the whole complex. The goal was to incorporate a unique shape yet design a leasing span with maximum funtionality.
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 located at the retail base while the residential uses span above.
Natural air and light is maximized throughout the building. Horizontal sun screen blades provide shading on the east, south and west facades. They 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.
