Complex geometric design co-ordinated in BIM

A ‘flame’ tower is the centrepiece of eight star-shaped wings inspired by Azerbaijan’s national emblem. The development's complex geometry was modelled by Chapman Taylor in BIM software, as well as deliverables including drawings, schedules and visualisations. Chapman Taylor co-ordinated the design process across multiple studios live in these models.

Concept and interior design

Originally designed by Chapman Taylor in 2007 as a congress centre, the building is being repurposed to include five levels of entertainment, leisure, F&B and retail. Our design for the interior is harmonised with the exterior design to provide a single homogenous concept for the entertainment centre.

The original concept was designed by Chapman Taylor in 2007. Chapman Taylor’s London studio was appointed to provide the interior design services in 2016, with the renovated complex set to open in March 2020.
