CAZA (Carlos Arnaiz Architects) announces the opening of City Center Tower in Manila, Philippines
CAZA (Carlos Arnaiz Architects), a Brooklyn-based architecture and design firm with offices in Bogota, Colombia; Lima, Peru; and Manila in the Philippines, have announced the opening of the City Center Tower located in downtown metro Manila, in the Philippines.
The new building will be the Filipino Headquarters for a range of major International Tech Companies, including Google.
With construction completed this month, the 27-storey-tall mixed-use building will feature three floors of commercial retail and dining space while also serving as the corporate offices for several prominent international companies.
CAZA’s design sought to defy the average core and shell design of a standard corporate office building by introducing refreshingly unexpected geometries that produce new experiences for users. By infusing a series of concentric circles extending across the horizontal axes of each floor, the tower’s exterior facade marries the structured shape of a cube with the free-form organic pattern of a wave. The resulting visual impact elicits efficiency and innovation while retaining a sense of light playfulness.
