Turning Torsto

With its 190.4 meters the Turning Torso is the 3rd highest residential building in Europe, after the 264-meter skyscraper Triumph Palace in Moscow and 212-meter skyscraper Sky Tower in Wroclaw. The design is based on nine cubes with five floors in each cube. Between floor rooms included will be a total of 54 floors. Each floor is about 400 m². The office space comprises approximately 4,200 sq ft and is located in the bottom two cubes. Cube three to nine cube comprises a total of 147 apartments. The top two floors (53 and 54) is the conference center Turning Torso Meetings. Each floor basically consists of a square portion about the core and a triangular portion, which partially carried by an externally stålbärverk. The entire structure rotates a quarter turn on its way up. From 2009, allowed the public to visit the building and see the view. This was allowed only during a few summer weeks and in limited numbers with advance booking, the price to £ 195. The building is built for residential and one has assessed the visits as for nuisance for residents if done more often than that. Groups can rent conference space and meeting rooms at the top. There was previously a tourist exhibition in a building right next to the (now closed). There is a parking garage on 5 floors in the building. It takes up far more land area than the skyscraper, and almost half of the floor space to it. There is an underground passage between the parking and the skyscraper.
