Century Spire

Manila, Philippines


Century Spire is a mixed-used, 60-story tower in Manila’s Makati district – the Philippines’ financial and economic hub.  The tower has a diagonally braced structure with a facade that is clad in a semi-reflective glass curtain.  It is articulated with balconies and terraces to create a rhythmic geometric pattern.  As the tower rises, three branches expand reaching different heights and form a dramatic crown at the top.

The upper floors will be comprised of residential units that include one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, along with suites, duplexes and penthouses.  Each unit will feature floor to ceiling glazing and a unique floor plan.  The building additionally has two floors of amenities for its residents as well as underground parking.  At the base of the tower there will be dedicated office spaces.

Armani/Casa, the celebrated Italian home fashion brand, collaborates with Studio Daniel Libeskind, designing the interior of the Century Spire’s its double-height lobbies, common areas and amenity spaces.

The project is currently under construction and is set to be completed by 2021.

“This summit of the building is divided into three sections to create an even more distinct and unprecedented look that is Libeskind’s trademark.” –Architect’s Newspaper (June 2014)
