We are crazy about apartment buildings, and about design. So, it has been a perfect fit for us to feature outstanding apartment design in our Apartments Around The World
social media entries.
We have featured design that we think is innovative, beautiful, or just plain unusual! We especially enjoy design that focuses on beautiful solutions to the functional challenges of creating homes in tight urban spaces. All of the projects below take different approaches to creating unique, private dwellings for large numbers of people.
Here are some of our favorites:
City Life - Milan - Zaha Hadid and Daniel Libeskind
The Interlace - Singapore - Ole Scheeren
(Highly recommended article. The Interlace design is both beautiful and functional, with a unique solution to a problem that all urban designers face.)
25 Verde - Turin - Luciano Pia
Marina City - Chicago - Bertrand Goldberg
Cubic Houses - Rotterdam - Piet Blom
Eight Spruce Street - New York - Frank Gehry
VM Houses - Copenhagen - Bjarke Ingels
If these two look interesting to you, check out the Bjarke Ingels profile on the NetFlix program Abstract: The Art of Design (S1: Ep4).
It is well worth your time.
Habitat 67 - Montreal - Moshe Safdie
Those are some iconic examples of how some of the greatest architects of our time have addressed higher density living. They remind us of our mission to focus on design as a means of creating powerful solutions.
What do you think? Is there design that has inspired you?
