Omnilife Corporation’s new facility is designed to addresses the company’s three needs: a tailored headquarters, leasable commercial office space and hotel suites. Designed to be recognizable and reinforce the brand, the spherical tower is dynamically conceived and illuminated to resemble a flame, an emblem present in the company’s logo.
It features a double skin façade punctuated by bold diagonals adding movement to the volume’s surface. The sphere’s varying width allows for versatile spaces and spatial interiors, while a concentrated structural core configures these spaces according to their role within the building plan.
A grey-water system and natural ventilation are used throughout the entire building, creating a comfortable workplace environment and integrating sustainability into its everyday use and site functionality.
