Olympia is designed to capture the beauty of the cityscape and landscape around it, but also to contribute to that beauty. The tower steps and curves as it rises, directing the floor-to-ceiling windows and terraces on each level towards the very best vistas.

For elements such as monolithic stone kitchen islands or the powder room vanities, the chamfer—or the angled facets that you’d see in a quartz crystal or Olympia’s unique footprint—was applied, making space for your feet and opening up floorspace.
