This project has been awarded a commendation since not only does it provide quality usage but at the same time plays an important part in revitalizing a former industrial estate. The architects have created a typologically interesting residential high-rise consisting of three structures of differing heights at a location that is highly conspicuous in terms of urban planning, namely at the tip of the former harbor mole. Resembling a »vertical city«, the »Tower«, the highest of the three edifices – is made up of different volumes stacked on top of one another. The result: over 50 different types of apartment and attractive spatial situations.
