The building shape is suggested from the image of seagulls flying over the sea. This shape is still perfect to catch most of the main wind directions that is the key goal of the energy project.


In the site of project wind is the best sustainable energy source available all day long and all year long, so we imagine the building as a big micro-wind farm capable of producing approximately 200,000 kW/h per year.


It was also conceived a new prototype of wind-turbine mount integrated into the structure.


The use virtually total of pre-built and sustainable components allows the management of the cleanest yard in accordance with the LEED protocol.


Project want to give back to the city its relationship with the sea through the modification of pedestrian and cycling paths by creating a promenade and orienting the main entrance and facade of the building towards the sea.
