1322 Roxas Blvd
Manila, Philippines – Golden Empire Tower

57-story, 1,200,000 sf luxury residence. This soaring tower meets the sea like the rounded prow of a ship, providing a unique profile against the skyline. The transparency of its exterior facade reflects the spectacular sunrises and sunsets over Manila Bay. Telescopic massing provides every living room with a panoramic view. Architecture International was responsible for the architecture and interior design of this high rise residence for Moldex Land, Inc. in collaboration with GF & Partners.

The bio-climatic nature of the tower is uniquely designed to take advantage of this specific site. The building provides operable windows to capture sea breezes and large window openings to maximize views, light, and air, with sunshades provided to minimize glare and heat. At night, the tower lighting is designed to be a quiet beacon to identify this important landmark on Manila Bay. It was collaborated with a local architect GF & Partners for Moldex Land, Inc.
