The tower in this case study is one of the examples of well-known “pencil towers” due to their likeness to a thin pencil projecting above the urban fabric. Each tall tower has usable floor space footprints that are sometimes only as big as a circulation core. In this case study, the circulation core is serving one flat per floor.
