About F&F Tower

The initial concept for the F&F tower, originally known as Revolution Tower, was a purely theoretical idea based on rotating geometry and a prism. This experiment was undertaken in the architect’s studio, and was observed by the prospective client who wished to appropriate the design for their own office tower. Hoping to create a trademark building, the client and design team worked with the original concept to come up with a feasible and unique design. The tower has a concrete structure, allowing each floor to rotate nine degrees from the floor below to create four small balconies for each office floor.

Located on a relatively small site (2,000 square meters) on a prominent commercial street in the city’s well-known banking district, the designers had to address many issues in their process to ensure the building’s iconic status and success. With a strict budget of US$50 million, the site’s set-backs as well as an adjacent gas station with underground wells were overcome to produce the distinctive tower.
