It makes environmental sense to build where public transport is well developed. High-rise buildings optimise the use of land and can benefit from existing infrastructure. “Our goal is to design the first great-value high-rise building,” Wingårdh declares. With a simple shape and a design that is rational and production-matched in every sense, a proper high-rise build with strong finances is to see the light of day. Tellus TWRs are two buildings towering amazingly high above the ground, at 236 metres and 177 metres respectively, equating to 78 and 58 floors. Compare this to Turning Torso, Sweden’s currently tallest building, at 191 metres and just 54 floors.
