THE PLINTH

The goal was to design units which are comfortable. Most high rise construction is set with a floor area in mind and they work backwards to fit the units in. We started with a unit that would be comparable in size to those of the units of rental apartment developers. 75, 90, 150m2 made comfortable spaces within these parameters and then laid the 65-unit tower around it. With this approach we were able to get the efficiency ratio to 11%.

Although two similar towers can be constructed. We feel that the podium design adds value while respecting the scale of the neighborhood. The podium steps down to the lower scale of the community. The podium also creates a larger more usable outdoor space. Having two towers would leave you with minimal out door space. With the podium we expand the outdoor space and maximize the views to the city.
