Azure Coast Tower

A unique location provides spectacular panoramic views.
With the ocean close by and the Fushan Mountains as a backdrop, the 400-meter tall Azure Coast Tower anchors the coastline and provides spectacular panoramic views. Conceived as a vertical city, the tower includes office, hospitality, residential, retail and dining space and links neighborhoods and business districts. Its shape facilitates air flow and reduces wind loads, while the serrated surface modulates wind pressure to avoid heightened acceleration, saving significantly on structural costs. Fins shade the glazing to avoid heat gain and provide surface space for integrated solar panels. Wind turbines embedded in the pinnacle supplement energy production and provide visual interest.
