Safdie Architects (SA) has been selected to design Qorner, a new residential tower in Quito, Ecuador, in collaboration with leading Ecuadorean construction firm, Uribe & Schwarzkopf, renowned for delivering iconic residential projects in Ecuador’s capital and beyond. The 24-story tower, overlooking La Carolina Park, features vertically stacked dwellings with units staggered in and out, creating generous garden terraces on each level. Qorner is SA’s first residential building in South America, and first project in Ecuador.
Building on the firm’s continued quest to advance innovations in housing design, the 24-story tower, to be one of Quito’s tallest, expands Safdie Architects’ work in South America.
