Description

A luxurious residential tower rises in the area of Bushnell Park, Hartford, CT. Up to that point, the concept is focused on creating a unique vertical neighborhood, that is distinct from the norm for the skyline of the city. The twisting form is very challenging for such concise area, but the reasoning for having such shape is to give the residents of each apartment a different perspective to view the city. For a thin skyscraper amongst the few but giant Hartford high rise buildings, it has to grow and evolve such as a new seed in a planter.
