PopMoma Residential Tower

Description
The strongly rectangular volume of this complex with its uniform façades lends it the appearance of an office building. The spatial qualities of the six apart-ments on each floor are, therefore, all the more surprising. Each floor has two one-room apartments, two three-room apartments and two five-room apart-ments. The compact arrangement of the vertical access – a double-helix stair and three lifts – makes it possible to produce  extremely economical floor plans. In all cases bedrooms and ancillary spaces are reached via the living rooms. The bath- rooms and toilets are located internally around the access core next to the entrances. This strict spatial arrangement has the disadvantage that some apart-ments face northeast – only the view can compensate for their poor illumination. The apartments to the northwest have three west-facing bedrooms while the living and dining area faces north. The arrangement of the three towers means that they will partly shade one another. As a result, the only really good apartments are on the uppermost storeys.
