About Helios Residences

The site context for the Helios Residences include a frontage of heritage terrace houses as well as a mix of other low-, mid-, and high-rise buildings. Responding to the unique pedestrian condition created by this context, the new towers developed a screening strategy to define a gradual connection to the environment. To create this screen and to contribute to the established greenery surrounding the site, a planted green “veil” was introduced at the base of the towers, together with planted elements that abound throughout the design.

The orientation and development of the towers was impacted by its presence at street level as well as its impact on the movement of air and passage of light to the surrounding buildings and streets. The amenities were planned not only to create a vivid impression of the building, but also to give residents an exceptional experience; the swimming pool was lofted above tennis courts and nestled amidst trees, offering a unique opportunity for recreation. Overall, the building promotes the use of greenery to improve not only its quality, but that of the areas surrounding it.
