The project reimagines the unoccupied Piraeus Tower by responding to Greek environment and culture, while mindful of the imperatives of designing towers in the 21st century. Each floor will have outdoor gathering spaces, and access to a large public space atop the building's base, all shaded with trellises. Sun shades over windows prevent the hot light from penetrating in. The exterior stairs are a sculptural element visible from afar, while the bridge connects the tower to the harbor across the highway.
