GCNM TOWERS  |  Jarkarta, Indonesia, 2011

Two residential towers of up to 55 storeys, standing 230 metres tall, add a variation to the growing central business district of Jarkarta by virtue of their stepped, folding crowns.

Emphasising what is typically a concealed utilitarian element, an egress stair on each tower was designed to become a feature by covering the main facade of each stir with a simple mesh screen, and adjusting the emergency egress lighting within it to accentuate both the stair and its back wall.
