As envisaged in the urban design master plan of Sunsuria City, Bell Suites tower block demarcates one side of the urban gateway at the southern access point of the main avenue. It is a significant tower-on-platform urban form occupying a quadrant of the roundabout intersection. The raised platform housing parking and services seemingly emerges from the ground at the intersection as the main street splits and slopes down from the ground plane of the platform from the street entry point at the middle of the 300m long but narrow site.
Above the platform a horizontally articulated tower block meets the new ground plane by carving out the base into triple volume on pilotis zone - inserted into which are blocks and elements of common spaces, facilities and pool & recreational deck. The high volume spaces are configured to lead the flow of circulation and spaces from the entrance penetrating and rising through and up to the deck. Such composition echoes the dynamic flow of vehicles and people along the site while the tower accentuates this interplay by articulating the facade in a braided and weaving style. Each wing of the tower floor plate also offsets and slides off each other in tandem to keep the form sleek and less monolithic, with a horizontal bias.
