Two symmetrically identical towers placed far from each other in order not to affect the natural wind flow form the housing project built in Sulaymaniyah city of Iraq.

A shopping mall was placed as a rectangular prism in the middle of the site that could serve to the two towers as much as the visitors.

Arrhythmic columns extruded to building surface create a pleasant arcade for the shopping mall and same pattern is folded to form the roof of the towers.

Perforated metal panels in different axes were used to change the vertical feeling of the towers that included 32 floors for each. The coincidental alignment of those panels and wooden coverings on balcony ceilings created a dynamic and original pattern on frontal surfaces.
