The Palace 73 Residences

A distinctive design with juxtaposing facades celebrates panoramic views of the city, embracing an abundance of natural light for its occupants and users.

The two slender and sculptural towers emerge harmoniously from the base podium to create a singular image, reinforced by an underlying geometric order. The combined expressive language of the towers and the Officetel at the podium is refined, elegant, and minimal with an unmistakable presence, and the two distinctive penthouses incised at the top of each tower further elevate the design.

Each of the two luxurious Residential towers are comprised of twenty-eight full-floor apartments and one two-level penthouse. At the lobby level, a soft and subtle palette of colors and textures have been curated for a bright and airy entry, while a sculptural stair connects to a double height mezzanine area that functions as a flexible space with an extensive open-air terrace. The residences include four bedrooms each, with apartment layouts designed to optimize views and maximize diffuse natural light while maintaining privacy. Features include garden spaces, terraces, double height environments and panoramic views.

The Officetel concept at the base contains a total of 15 detached unique residences with generous outdoor terrace gardens for each unit allowing for generous access to light and fresh air. In order to create a symbiotic contrast with the towers, these residential volumes at the base are clad in an elongated light-colored brick. The shared amenity spaces located below the residential towers and the Officetel come alive through an engaging program with tactile spaces and materials. Skylights strategically located provide a dramatic source of light to the communal areas, especially the pool. These amenities areas revolve around wellness, health, dining and culture. The facade composition of solid walls, frames, screens, curtainwall, terraces and courtyards responds to the unit layouts, environmental and urban context and views. Defined by layering and materiality, the details of these various components give the facade color, depth, texture, and movement in the natural daylight. Enhanced light quality is also made available to occupants through increased facade transparency and an abundance of diffused daylight. The facade is made up of both a curtain wall and a window wall system and both systems will include operable windows integrated into the design, prioritizing not only natural light but also fresh air throughout.
