This residential complex in Chaochu (PRC) consist of four high-rise towers, that because of their strategic position in the plot, allow every apartment a view to a lake. By minor rotation of each of the tower we achieve better view condition and the group of towers create more dynamic urban configuration, reducing its visual impact. The towers stand on podiums, that together create attractive public space with restaurants, cafes and shops on the ground floors.
The podium footprint echoes a closely located village urban structure, with a high density low-rise houses and strong human scale character. These squares and the lake have a potential to bring people from further communities around the city.
The biggest apartments are not located – as traditionally – on top floors but occupy second and third floor in a cascade shaped forms with large terraces and with direct access from public space. On the rest of the floors are located typical 2 and 3 bedroom apartments where every of them has an access to wide terrace facing south with the view to landscape scenery. Terraces are protected with light bamboo brise soleils facade that can be moved and adapted by users following their needs.
