The design for this competition features two towers with similar volumes but with subtle shape and height differences, as if they wanted to create a dialogue between them. The towers are linked with a single base that at street level is read as a single building.

As a reminder of the original topography the base of the tower facades are designed with strong slopes. This is solved with a controlled cantilevered façade that creates the illusion that the towers are floating above sloped surfaces. This strategy is used on the top part too, to create a cantilevered viewpoint so the towers seem to overlook each other.
