Signature Tower . Kuala Lumpur


BIG

The Signature Tower will anchor the Kuala Lumpur Financial District: a beacon announcing the area’s position and an addition to the skyline characterized by the twin silhouettes of the Petronas Towers.





























How could we add a new, singular signature to KL´s world famous skyline that complimented its famous neighbors, rather than competing for attention?
Embraced by a ring of towers, the Signature Tower will emerge from the dense urban cluster to expand and unfold as it reaches an uninterrupted panorama above its neighbors. Geometry growing with the value of its floors, the tower accommodates all scales of business – a combination slim spire, efficient slab and flexible cube to suit the needs of startups and corporations. Floor plate efficiency, daylight penetration, natural ventilation and the mathematics of perfect proportions combine the rational and the sculptural, the pragmatic and the ideal.
The resulting silhouette acquires an unexpected kinship to the Petronas towers. Rather than echoing their silhouettes, it fills the space framed by their twin profiles. Like Rubin’s Vase – the tower inhabits the urban void outlined by the two towers, the singular uniting the multiple. Completing the symbolic unity of the Petronas Towers, the Signature Tower adds a seamlessly integrated – yet strikingly unique – character to KL’s skyline.
