The helicoidal towers looks like the structure of DNA, conceptually speaking to the building blocks of life. In a single level, four types of housing units are present, and in the structure as a whole there are 40 luxurious apartments as well as facilities. The act of twisting the form creates the optimization for open-air hanging gardens consisting of tall planted balconies of suspended orchards, organic vegetable gardens and medicinal greenery.
