This new luxury residential tower is branded by Formula One legend Michael Schumacher. WSP USA is collaborating with client Homestead and design architect UHA-London to structure the sculpted form.

 

Elliptical Form

While deceptively complex, the basis for the tower’s massing is actually an ellipsoid. Columns are typically located only at the perimeter just inside the 5.9-foot terraces, and are generally set out on an orthogonal grid in order to simplify construction.

Only a few interior columns have been introduced to achieve the thin flat plate floor construction as well as participate in the outrigger lateral system, specially detailed to resist the Zone IV earthquake loads.
