The mixed-use Turning Torso consists of nine cubes of five floors each. With the intermediate floors between the cubes, the total number of floors comes to 54. The entire stack of cubes twists 90 degrees from bottom to top, creating an impression of lightness and movement.
Five high-speed KONE Alta™ elevators in the core of the structure, reaching 5 m/s (1000 fpm), serve the 190 meter (623 ft) tower. The solution adjusts to the varying people flow patterns to and from offices and residences. One of the elevators is equipped to operate during emergencies and serve as a firefighting elevator. The unique KONE JumpLift™ solution served the site during construction. This elevator rises along with the building, so the elevator can be used for moving equipment and people while the building is going up.
What is People Flow®?
People Flow means people moving smoothly, safely, comfortably, and without waiting in and between buildings.
