The project propose two layered volumes embracing the rich mix of different programs and distribution:
-base of the volume as public programs and offices
-top floors as apartments
The tower strip steps up and down according to the urban height limits and form terraces-gardens. Public Base volumes are separated and create open squares - dialog of external plaza with public programs and offices. Spaces are communicative, bright, fluid, and easily accessible and offer nice views and connections with surroundings: Strenia square, Park and roads.
10x10 MODULAR GRID - FLEXIBILITY
Both volumes are divided into modules, 10x10m in floor-plan. That is most sufficient modular grid for all programs (housing, public, office, service, and garage) and in this grid structure, façade panels and installation shafts are organized. Therefore plans and volumes are flexible and adaptable so distribution of programs can change according to the demands of investor or changes in the market-needs.
ECONOMIC AND OPERATIONAL FEASIBILITY
The proposal is based on the required surfaces from the brief. Due to its modular grid program distribution is flexible also the brief can be interchangeable and adaptable. Grid and modules repeat in apartments, public areas, offices, so it is possible to change, switch programs or insert new according to the changes on the market or investors needs. Distribution of vertical cores allow different plan organizations - combinations of offices/programs within one or more floors. On the proposed grid of leasable or saleable configuration can be organized.
