The project proposes the increase of a vertical volume which contrasts with the relatively low volumes around. Centers of all major metropolises of the United States and Europe have their down-town centers, focusing mainly on shopping centers and representatives of major national and international businesses.

Downtown One Tower with its strategic position in Tirana along the boulevard “Bajram Curri” has the potential to become a fantastic landmark for the city. Being the tallest building in Albania and the floors, which vary in volumes, creates an impressive look. The nature of the design is based on the silhouette of the Albanian territory and its morphology. The height of the wristlet reaches 140.6 m and will show up in the silhouette of the city.

The elevated volume is now rolling back to orientate at Skanderbeg Square. Creating a longitudinal section module allows better management of plans and formatting of the object itself. The module is played by creating push and exit in its northern and southern part forming the silhouette of the map of Albania.
