The completed Qorner Tower in Quito, Ecuador

Uribe Schwarzkopf has completed Qorner, a new fractalized tower by famed Israeli architect Moshie Safdie. Adding to its already illustrious collection of adventurous Quito debuts by international heavyweights – Jean Nouvel, Bjarke Ingels and Bernardo Fort-Brescia – the forward-thinking Ecuadorian developer announced the completion of its latest venture this week.

Built on a small corner site, Safdie’s lavish design draws heavily from the playbook of his seminal housing project, Habitat 67 in Montreal and Holland Village in Singapore, blending the tower’s 24-story deck residential with a delicious irregularity to make room for a double balcony in height on the east and west facades.
