Invited competition entry for a residential tower and leisure complex with swimming pool on the banks of the River Lagan. Sixteen floors of apartments are proposed over a plinth which contains the leisure complex and car parking. The apartment plans are arranged to ensure  extensive natural light and spectacular views from all rooms. The swimming pool is clad in translucent cladding to create  a dramatic light box and the glass wall of the sports hall presents a living screen to the motorway bridge to the north of the site.
