Design and efficiency

A 32-storey tower designed by architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) will soon rise in Bonifacio Global City. As the only PEZA-accredited space built for locators in 2017, The Curve is set to be completed this March 2017, according to  Leechiu Property Consultants (LPC). The project, which combines SOM’s mastery of design and efficient, environment-friendly features, is located on 3rd Avenue corner 32nd Street. Taut and textured curtain walls mark the Curve’s look, and the building will feature street-front retail shops, five levels of above-grade parking, and over 24,000 square meters of leasable space. SOM also incorporated sustainability technologies and passive energy-saving strategies in the Curve’s overall workings and design, thus earning it a LEED Gold Certification. These include low-iron insulated glazing units and low-emissivity materials, high-efficiency LED lighting, reduced water consumption, and rain harvesting.
