A seven-story, U-shaped apartment block elevated on concrete pilotis accommodates 112, two-to-five-room apartments and encloses an inner courtyard with sports and recreation facilities including a large swimming pool and tennis court.
The modular facade is articulated at each level with subtle offsets that create a curved geometry, a set of concave and convex movements that follow the streets bordering the site. Swisspearl fiber cement panels are key to expressing this volumetric strategy. A lightweight material that allows for largescale panels has proven to be the ideal material to articulate the facade shapes. A dark shade was chosen for the ground floor and penthouses, contrasting with the main body of the building, for which white was chosen.
