Render picture of Atrium at the top of the Tower (that round thing at the top of the tower in the picture is the helipad and the helicopter landing on it)



New Town West Tower will have a rounded triangular floorplate, which will reduce horizontal wind loads and allow floors to be rented by three separate tenants. A diagrid structure made of a combination of concrete and steel will brace the double-skin glass fašades. By angling the building's three facades away from the sun's powerful east-west rays and adding sun-shading louvers to the double skin, the architects expect to minimize heat gain and maximize energy efficiency. Inside, ceiling heights of 3 meters will give offices and hotel rooms a more spacious feeling. Arup is working with Wilkinson Eyre on the conceptual design and the South China Design Institute is doing the engineering.
