The surroundings of the place where the building will be implanted is characterized by its multifunctionality, consisting of residential buildings, shops and offices, with heights varying between 40 and 60-meter-tall.

It is in this landscape that the Oporto Tower will be born, a corporate building with a strong identity and an undeniable grandeur. The volume will be developed in 13 office floors – above a two-story base dedicated to the reception area and social spaces – and will also have three basement floors, intended for parking areas and technical spaces.

The volume has peculiar characteristics, as the horizontal section is inscribed in an ellipse whose geometry changes on all floors. The movement of structural, transparent and opaque elements creates the sensation of a dynamic form.
