SAO PAULO | Infinity Tower | 118m | 21 fl | Com

INFINITY TOWER
SAO PAULO, BRAZIL


Infinity Tower will be 40,000 m² office tower located at the center of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Its immediate proximity to the intersection of Faria Lima and Juscelino Kubitschek Boulevrd, the emerging hearts of Sao Paulo's Financial District, strategically positions the tower as one of the City's only Class A office Buildings.

The dynamic massing of the building, nautical in nature, is reminiscent of a schooner running under full sail. The 118m tall tower elegantly extends skyward from a Plaza Level reflecting pool and responds simultaneously to both the urban context and the City's Zoning criteria. The curving reflecting pool gently defines the full height glass enclosed Lobby while 18 offices floors, each approximately 2,000 m², rise above. The building's "sails" gracefully warp each level with two sweeping curves of a glass curtainwall system that is highlighted by exterior "brise soleil" fins to control sunlight and glare.

Private balcones extend form each end of both curves and afford dramatic viwes city's older Avenida Paulista center to the North and the emerging new development to the South. The top of the building is sharply sculpted and punctuated by a rooftop heliport to provide direct executive access to each office level below.

Ground level access is readily accessible to pedestrians and vehicles alike. A series of reflecting pools, shaded walkways, and landscaped green areas offer a quite transition between the City and Tower. A canopy covered porte-cochere is located directly adjacent to the Lobby's main entry. The nautical motif of the tower also defines the lobby witch is surrounded by water and accessed across a bridge. An 11m high curved glass wall continues the sweeping gestures of the tower above and the material palette features the rich finish of Brazilian IPE wood for the floor and a dark Brazilian walnut for the core enclosure.

Very nice building, probably the best thing rising in São Paulo for the last decade or so.

agree with u guys really cool design, but wish it were a bit taller. Thing is that this area of Sao Paulo is relatively close to one of the city's airports so they can't build anything taller than 200m or something like that. Its a shame!

Boring. Come on, Sao Paulo is a huge city with already numerous highrises. This tower should be at least 200m (otherwise change the name in little knob or something)
