Urban landscapes are not strangers when it comes to seeing structures made up of glass and steel.
But for ArthaLand Century Pacific Tower, there is more than what meets the eye of passers-by.|
The area inside the tower has a sense of openness and it comes with a foyer that is visually refreshing because of the natural light from the sun that keeps it well-lit. Keeping with the refreshing and productive environment it brings to its occupants, the upper levels of the ArthaLand Century Pacific Tower are structured to have high ceilings and wide floor areas to relieve the feeling of a cramped office space.
Well-lit spaces are because of the windows of the tower that are arranged like serrated edges—its design is not only for aesthetic but it also keeps heat out and the sunlight in while providing adequate shading without the need for additional structures within the ArthaLand Century Pacific Tower.
Aside from its well-lit spaces, the tower also boasts of its air circulation in each floor that flows with ease and leaves a light and comfortable feeling to its occupants.
The business center serves as the central hub of ArthaLand Century Pacific Tower. Guests, tenants, and occupants are given this space to gather and exchange ideas.
According to Jamie González, the vice chairman and president of ArthaLand, the company abandoned the idea of cookie-cutter developments that is relegated to a formulated approach. ArthaLand Century Pacific tower served as the company’s inspiration and motivation by challenging them not to be the biggest company in the industry but the best.
“Creativity, innovation and attention to detail.” Gonzales believes that these are what makes ArthaLand stand out in the real estate industry.
The greener side
ArthaLand is committed to going green. This is manifested in the tower’s roof garden and surrounding pocket parks that add verdant greenery among the urban landscape.
“We promote the environmental sustainability to the workers,” says Edgar Sabidong, senior assistant vice president for technical services of ArthaLand.
Sabidong added that the company was influenced greatly by the environment in the development of the tower and that the company promotes the green agenda, transcending the boundaries of the ArthaLand Century Pacific Tower.
Despite the expense in putting up “green” buildings, ArthaLand stands by the tower’s “Life Cycle,” where the amount of efficiency over time allows the building to still function conveniently no matter how much it ages while cutting back at energy costs.
