Centro is a 35-storey modern residential tower juxtaposed against the surrounding monolithic housing flats. Sensitive to the site’s context, the residential tower is an arrangement of three main peripheral slab blocks that maximises the three main views from the site. Simplicity is expressed through sleek vertical lines and neatly defined forms on the façade, which accentuate the height of the tower. A rhythmic variation of patterns is created through the orderly arrangement of openings and balconies that punctuate the tower at regular intervals. The interplay of light and shadow formed by the recesses, ledges and balconies on the façade also add interest to the clean lines of the building. In addition, an elevated communal deck on the sixth storey provides privacy while recreating an idiosyncratic nature setting that offers reprieve from the hustle of urban living.
