This is the project for six residential towers that typically total 9 stories, including the ground floor and the parking area, which are arranged on a very steep plot in the suburb of Westlands, Nairobi. The towers have a unique geometry that causes each floor to be different from the previous.

Windmill's mission has been the completion of the final design for the foundation, containment and structure, including the development of all forms of manufactured armour for the construction. Collaboration has also extended to technical assistance to the construction team, especially at the beginning of the work.

One of the difficulties was to control the dynamic aspects (Nairobi is a city with moderate seismic activity) of the resistent systems that are supported on a surface with a steep gradient and therefore begin from indistinct dimensions.
