De Kroon

Situated between Central Station and the Spui, next to the new Ministries of Foreign Affairs, stands De Kroon, a 131m high rise residential tower including office- and commercial space.

Tianjin CTF Finance Centre

The design for the Tianjin Chow Tai Fook Binhai Centre uses undulating curves to subtly express three programmatic elements while presenting a bold monolithic expression on the skyline. The 530-meter-tall skyscraper will house offices, 300 service apartments, and a five-star, 350-room hotel. The tower will be a striking new landmark in the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA), located just outside Tianjin.The gently curving glass skin conceals eight sloping columns that lie behind the primary bends of the elevation and increase the structure’s stiffness in response to seismic concerns. Strategically placed, multistory wind vents combined with the tower's aerodynamic shape reduce vortex shedding, which in turn dramati... En savoir plus

De Zalmhaven

The Zalmhaven is the new eye-catcher on the Rotterdam skyline. With 215 meters, this will be the highest residential tower in the Benelux. Two flanking towers (by KAAN Architecten) form a visual staircase to the lower Scheepvaartkwartier.  For this ambitious project, much attention has been paid to the relationship with the environment and the liveliness at ground level. On the urban scale, the high tower acts as a connecting element between the Scheepvaartkwartier and the Kop van Zuid, between the north and south side of the city. In this way, the focus of the city is shifted towards the water.  The style of the architecture and the character of the building are in line with the existing buildings of the area. The design is ins... En savoir plus
