‘torre ACM’ by cheungvogl, macau, china 

hong kong-based architecture practice cheungvogl has developed ‘torre ACM’, a tower in macau, china. the building is a residential and retail complex meant to integrate into the historic landscape while still furthering the city’s progress. 30 levels of high-end dwellings stack onto a retail level. the slightly tapered volume consists of gently undulating bay-windows, changing the reflection of the light as it hits the angled glass. the shape of the structure itself allows for daylight to reach street level and neighboring buildings.

the residential aspect of the project has a series of adaptable floor plans, allowing for flexibility in space arrangement. each unit also has a high amount of natural lighting and ventilation, partially because the windows are able to open. due to its location, some tenants will have a view of the south china sea, while others will be able to look at the surrounding historical sites.
