4 November 2011 No Comment

You would never normally describe a skyscraper as sensuous, but this tower in Ontario, Canada, is called the ‘Marilyn Monroe’ for good reason. Just check out those curves!

Graceful, curvaceous shape

Like an hour-glass body squeezed into a figure-hugging dress, Tower One at residential complex Absolute World in Mississauga is the ultimate in feminine form. The graceful, curvaceous shape is achieved through the delicate rotation of the floorplates from just two to eight degrees, ensuring the profile of the building is overwhelmingly soft and sexy.

City centre living with a 360 degree twist

The curved, fluid design of the building means that every condo has a spacious continuous balcony which gives residents clear, uninterrupted views not only of the city but the vertical drop to the ground below.

In life, Marilyn was never short of male admirers and likewise, Tower One has her own suitor. With the floorplates on a different rotation pattern however, the profile of ‘Monroe’s Mate, ’ otherwise known as Tower Two, is much more masculine and muscular, contrasting and yet complementing the beauty of its companion.

The most voluptuous address in the neighbourhood

Designed by Yansong Ma from MAD Studio Beijing, Absolute World offers city centre living with a 360 degree twist. It’s not just a place to live but a complete lifestyle experience within an exclusive residential community. Its first-class facilities include a three-storey recreation and exercise centre and a landscaped central piazza.

And, of course, you get to live in what can only be described as one of the most voluptuous addresses in the city. Who said you can’t engineer beauty?
