Leaf-Shaped Sections Protrudes From the Gleaming Façade of One Hundred Residential Tower in US | Studio Gang

US-based architecture firm Studio Gang has designed 'One Hundred'- a tiered residential tower with angled glass sections overlooking Forest Park in St. Louis. This is the firm's first project in the city that soars over 380 feet and comprises residential apartments, retail space, parking and other amenities with the Gateway Arch to the east and views of the park to the west. The project is defined by its protruding leaf-shaped sections that reflect the parkland opposite. Read more about the project below at SURFACES REPORTER (SR):

Angled Façade

The firm angled the façade to form outdoor spaces in the tops of each tier. It provides terraces for a quarter of the apartments. Dwellers share the common green roof podium. 


The gleaming façade of the skyscraper reflects the nearby trees. In addition, the overlapping glass elements create the balcony rail.


Other Striking Features

The leaf-shaped plan, site orientation, and tiered massing of the building increase its performance, decrease overall energy load, and enhance inhabitant comfort.

Each apartment contains a corner living room with double exposures. Besides, the windows offer panoramic views of the surrounding while maximising the amount and quality of daylight within the units.


The ground level of the building encompasses public and retail spaces that are adjacent to the park.
