DESCRIPTION
 
.
HOK, Hellmuth Obata Kassabaum, Flame Towers, Baku, Azerbaijan, Balkar MühendislikThe Flame Towers complex in Azerbaijan’s capital city Baku is arguably one of the most adventurous and striking designs ever constructed in any major city worldwide. HOK undertook the masterplanning, concept and schematic design for the site and towers, and construction work is currently nearing completion. The residential tower sits to the south, accommodating some 130 residential apartments over 39 floors, and is the tallest of the three towers. It will house luxury apartments and boasts stunning views across the surrounding area, while the hotel is sited on the northern corner of the site and consists of 250 rooms and 61 serviced apartments over 33 floors. The office tower is set on the western side of the complex, providing a net 33.114 square metres of grade A flexible commercial office space.

HOK, Hellmuth Obata Kassabaum, Flame Towers, Baku, Azerbaijan, Balkar MühendislikHOK are currently working on the retail podium which will act as the anchor for the project, providing all of the leisure and retail facilities that will service the three towers and visitors to the development. Located at the heart of the site, the atrium incorporates three levels of leisure facilities including boutique shops, restaurants and a cinema.  Where the towers and pavilions meet, gaps in the framework allow the surroundings to be drawn inside, the landscape of the street merging with the interior to create a fluid boundary between inside and outside space.

The aim was for the bold form of the towers to create a unique focal point on Baku’s skyline and HOK was keen to bring that dynamic vocabulary into the interior spaces. By creating a fluid boundary between the interior space of the pavilions and the exterior context, the retail and leisure spaces will serve as a natural connection between the towers and their different uses. Linking the scheme to its surroundings and thus reinforcing the existing urban context was considered critical from the earliest stages of the design process.
