Kengo Kuma & Associates and developer Harwood International have broken ground on a twisted, seven-story tower for Rolex in Dallas' Uptown district. The luxury watchmaker intends on using the 136,857-square-foot building as a new office space. It will rise adjacent to Rolex's original building on Harwood Street that was built in 1984.
According to Kuma, the building "fuses nature and architecture," and will feature a tiered Japanese-inspired garden.
“This development will set a new standard for work life in the US," said Harwood CEO Gabriel Barbier-Mueller. “We intend on creating an office that will feature a unique blend of innovative architecture and gardens that Dallas has never seen before.”
Kuma is working with Harwood's in-house design team and landscape architect Sadafumi Uchiyama.
