De Rokade residential building

Description
The perforated tower block has a cross- shaped floor plan with a central access core with lift shafts and parallel dogleg fire escape stairs. The apartments are arranged around this core in a clover-leaf fashion. The units follow an L-shaped plan and face in two directions. The larger apartments occupy two L-shaped elements, one containing the living area, kitchen and dining area, and the other the private bedrooms. These units have a view in three directions. Views between the loggias in front of the living area and the bedrooms create interesting spatial relationships between spaces that are not connected internally. The strongly contrasting treatment of the different surfaces of the façade lends the build- ing a distinct appearance and empha-sises its function as an urban landmark.
