With its elegant, delicately weaved façade and welcoming public spaces, the Icone Tower sets a shining example of what contemporary Filipino architecture can be.
The 275 meters spanning 36 floors contains a gallery, a publicly accessible museum and observatory, conference hall, restaurant and dining facilities as well as attractive, daylight infused office spaces.
Henning Larsen is designing a truly Filipino building supporting the culture’s strong penchant for gatherings and celebrations, traditionally enjoyed in public spaces.
At the plaza, in the shadow of trees from Filipino rainforests, they offer a protected space for popular activities and social gatherings, creating life in the heart of the city.
