residential tower in someso (a coruña)

october 2006  |  spain - north  |  residential  |  projects


it is a residential tower of 50 meters high and three floors below street level in the city of a coruña. the architectural approach of creus and carrasco proposed each floor as a tray with its zigzagging borders that by turning from floor to floor configurate the attractive image that is observed in the next images. 

structurally the whole building is made of reinforced concrete, both columns as well as massive floors. the four corners of each floor form cantilevers of almost 4 meters and are formed by massive reinforced concrete slabs that are folded. 

the superior image is of one of the calculation models developed for its analysis.
