Rochavera Corporate TowersEdit profile
Asymmetric and juxtaposed volumes, implementation in non-orthogonal angles, high technology, exuberant landscaping and a philosophy focused on sustainability are the characteristics of the Rochaverá Corporate Towers, a Tishman Speyer development by Aflalo & Gasperini. The project is characterized for a set of offices buildings implanted in a land with three fronts: Chucri Zaidan ave., United Nations ave. and a Parking Street, where it occupies an almost 34 thousand m² lot . This situation allows an excellent accessibility to the set, besides the great exposition to the most varied sightseeing spots in the neighborhood, marking definitively its presence in the region. The project program consists of four buildings, totaling 228 thousand m² of built area, which had been implanted around a central square by where the access to the lobby of each set is made, either by pedestrians or vehicles. The towers are distinguished by the slope of nine degrees of the facades, which resulted in the projection of 12 m, creating an elegant and harmonious aesthetic effect. To the architect Roberto Aflalo, the purpose was "using various architectural language, creating a harmonious dialogue between them and escape the obvious." In addition to the formal intention, the tilted design of the towers has an economic reason: the top floors, always more valued due to the view and noise reduction, are still more profitable with the increase in their dimensions. Its external facades combine precast elements of concrete covered by polished granite plates, interspersed by a structure of aluminum and covered in glass. A third of the buildings will have the faced covered by a curtain on aluminum and glass. The buildings were designed according to the standards of the Green Building Council, North-American entity conferring the sustainability LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
