The tower had to comprise 32 floors and a five-level underground car park. However, as the building lot was located within the Lybed River floodplain, the initial plan was rejected due to the high cost of construction works. Finally, the aboveground car parks were incorporated into a high-rise volume of 27 floors standing on a six-storey stylobate (the top step of the stepped platform on which temple colums used to be erected). From the viewpoint of interior layout, 101 Tower is a typical office building, designed with the maximum efficiency of floor area.
The centre comprises a functional core with ten elevators and blocks of bathroom units. Each storey contains 1,500 m² of flexible office space with various possibilities for inner division and rental. Two scissor stairs were also incorporated in order to cut down the area of the functional premises of the building.
Despite its strict economy, the tower is perceived as an open and lively space not only by its inhabitants but also by outside visitors. Entering the building through a revolving door, one arrives in the transparent hall with a gorgeous empty area and a calm combination of grey, white, and silver surfaces. The exterior is visible in its entirety thanks to a glazed curtain wall. There is a cosy corner in which to stop and rest, and there is also a restaurant, a bank, a florist’s and a beauty salon. The building attracts additional visitors with its 3,500 m² fitness centre on the sixth floor, which includes a 25-metre swimming pool among other sport and leisure facilities. The conference hall on the seventh floor makes it a hospitable place for organising large corporate and public events. The multi-level car park for 259 vehicles is also available for guest use.
