The Millennium Tower meets the client’s aspiration to create modern interpretation of the art deco skyscrapers of the 1930s. The building combines a series of visual elements into a symmetrical composition which evokes tradition with a modern cutting edge.
The elegant ‘slipping’ elements interlock to suggest the appearance of movement towards the sky in a tapering fashion so that the lowest mass rises to the topmost of the building.
A solid frame element anchors the building to the ground whilst a second central body supported by the frame element expresses a vertical upward movement. The lighter elements at the apex of the building is further emphasised by the presence of the deep recess at the base which creates a sense of weightlessness to the ‘main body’ of the tower.
A total of 301 three-bedroom apartments and 106 two bedroom apartments are provided on 55 typical floors, and the building services are located on floors 10, 30 and 50.
