Four cricket bats and a balancing ball seen in ARK's 96 Iconic Tower for Sri Lanka 

ARK (Reza Kabul Architects) has shared its latest design with WAN. The literal concept is dedicated to the Sri Lankan Cricketers that won the 1996 World Cup and is comprised of four cricket bat shaped structures with a cricket ball balanced between the handles. The team has selected Colombo as the location for this project.

The mixed-use form - named 96 Iconic Tower - blends residential units with retail outlets and public space, rising to 96 storeys. Public parking and vehicular drop-off can be found on the lower ground floor, with lifts to the south leading to the ticket counter for the Observatory on the 92nd level and the Sri Lankan Cricket Legends Museum on the 93rd floor.

Above this are four levels of retail outlets totalling 8366 sq m connected by 18 escalators. Levels 4 and 5 host a multiplex cinema with capacity for 1,420 viewers. A separate entryway on the ground floor leads to the residential lobby where there are 4 lifts for the residents and a further two for domestic staff.

These lifts lead to a second residential lobby on the sixth floor which is also the location of the covered residents’ parking. Further parking for residents can be found on levels 7-12.

There are two entertainment decks within the 96 Iconic Tower (levels 14 and 66) which include: a library; indoor gaming centre, business centre, jogging track, children’s play area, outdoor play area, lounge and coffee shop, gym, spa, outdoor yoga area, and sky decks.

Levels 15-49, 51-64 and 67-90 are dedicated to residential developments, and there are seven service floors in total. There is also a revolving restaurant on levels 94 and 95, plus an indoor cricket training academy on the top storey, level 96.
