The tower comprises identical floor plates to maximize efficiency. While the conventional building functions are placed in the rectangular tower, the social spaces protrude in a string of pearls wrapped around the slender silhouette like a vine on a column. The cascade of external boxes creates shortcuts between the adjoining floors and forms a sequence of terraces providing generous sky gardens for every floor in the tower, and enhancing connectivity between neighboring floors. The Vine becomes the social space of the building.
