Epoch Park Tower | architecture, interiors
The design of Epoch Park Tower gives a subtle nod to the name of the brand, meaning a distinct period in time. Instead of defining a particular time period, the passage of time is considered as a design element; we used materials that get better with age and utilize the movement of the sun to create dynamic, always changing patterns. Greenery, sunlight, and breeze are as much a part of the concept realization as concrete, wood, and steel. Because of the nature of the site, we were able to create one volume that is an extension of the outside - acting like a greenhouse- and another volume that contrasts the greenery through the use of reclaimed wood, concrete, and steel to give a rougher, more aged feel. A blackened and rusted steel bar is a central focal point that draws people around it and links the volumes together.
