B&B TOWER

MULTI-APPARTMENT BLOCK

Designed for a corner plot at Tophane’s neighborhood junction, the residential tower will contain 65 residential units. The position between highly frequented street and quiet neighborhood on the back led us to design a building that aims to reflect both. The design of the 15 story tower was driven by the duality of its context.

The form will step back from the street at the height of the neighboring structures creating green terraces facing the inner green park, while reaching the highest point at the corner where two streets meet. The window composition follow the context facades where they line up, and become larger as they get further up.

Narrow symmetric windows echoing the façade of its traditional neighbors seamlessly transition to contemporary floor-to-ceiling various dimensions windows towards the corner and the top, forming a gradient from traditional to modern. Another important element that elevates this development in terms of the lifestyle it offers is the focus on green spaces. We wanted to one up the traditional apartment block formula by incorporating more outdoor terraces. This comes by way of a central inner courtyard with benches, a number of units with their own private green terraces for the upper floors.
