The project refers to the interiors, the facades’ lighting design and the exteriors of a residential tower for managers working in the city. The landmark tower is part of a high rise and hotel complex in the heart of the city of Xian, commissioned by the Shaanxi Wutong Apartment Operation Management Co., Ltd.
The thirty-storey tower consists of a lobby with lounges, bookstore, offices, a shared third floor, twenty-eight floors of apartments (seven per floor) and two duplex penthouses for corporate executives.
The apartments, mainly intended for managers working far from their families, are conceived as an extension of their homes. They provide a connection with relatives through a central screen that becomes a “digital door”, softening distances.
Smart olfactory diffusers, able to choose aromas, allow the residents to create interior personalized sensory landscapes.
The apartments are also equipped with mobile separation systems such as glass panels, sliding metal meshes and sound-absorbing curtains, capable of reconfiguring the spaces and guaranteeing privacy and discretion.
