The design is in the spirit of the Banyan tree.
The innovative award-winning architectural design of Sequis Tower is a result of world-class collaboration with one of the world’s prominent New York based architecture firms, Kohn Pederson Fox Associates (KPF). A gradation of fins and panels is arrayed across the tower’s curtain wall, optimized on each side to compensate for façade-specific solar radiation levels. Like the Banyan tree, at the ground the project is composed of a series of finely scaled elements that rise upwards, culminating in a magnificent tower and shade. The development also employs locally sourced materials, high efficiency systems, native vegetation used for landscaping and roof gardens, and storm water retention systems on site.
Aside of its design, Sequis Tower won the Best Green Development for its concern toward protecting the environment. Some of the features that have become considerations are the recycled materials, double Glaze Glass and low E, LED lightings, e-circulated water system and native vegetation in the open area of Sequis Tower.
Sequis Tower is also cited as Highly Commended for Best Universal Design Development category for its design and facilities which ensure the ease and comfort of diverse visitors, including elder and children. Furthermore, Sequis Tower is strategically located and well connected to public transportation, especially Mass Rapid Transit (MRT).
Prior celebrating its topping off in May 2017, we will will see one of the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum project ready for operational in SCBD, Jakarta starting July 2018.
