V Tower

The basic strategy in the design of the building led to the minimisation of the volume and lightening of the object. The building mass was divided into a pair of towers. Both towers are connected by a neck at two-thirds height. From this height level, the towers continue separately whereby\ each of them has a separate vertical axis, composition and identity.
