The Four-Leaf Towers’ symbol is derived from the four-leaf clover pattern. The square-quadrant plan of each building spreads from a central core like the four-leaf clover grows from a central stem.
Cesar Pelli, world-renowned architect educated at the National University of Tucuman (Argentina) and former Dean of the School of Architecture at Yale University, was selected to design this Houston landmark.
Throughout his career, Mr. Pelli has avoided formulaic designs as he believes that the design of each project should derive from its unique location, chosen construction technologies,and purpose. For Four-Leaf Towers, a luxury high-rise condominium ahead of its time in both scale and visual impact, Mr. Pelli designed a unique exterior cladding of glass in three colors – colors that echo homes in the prestigious Tanglewood neighborhood adjacent to Four-Leaf Towers – woven into a distinctive patterns that interacts beautifully with the ever-changing Texas sky.
The towers have become an iconic and integral part of the District, enhancing both its visual appeal and its international prestige.
The two forty-story, square buildings stand amid a spacious manicured landscape unmatched elsewhere in Houston. The expansive site displays the towers’ handsome exterior to maximum advantage and offers residents quiet and serenity in the midst of the city’s bustling Uptown District. At the same time, the towers have become an iconic and integral part of the District, enhancing both its visual appeal and its international prestige.
Rising above the intricate glass exterior and beyond the two-story penthouse residences that occupy the thirty-ninth and fortieth floors, the square shape of each building becomes octagonal, forming a top crown. Standing at right angles to one another, the two towers and their park-like setting form an iconic property that is both a luxurious and comfortable residence and a world-class architectural statement.
