Kanoa Tower in Nantes, France by Studio 02 Architectes

 
May 25th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio 02 Architectes 

The Kanoa tower is a project that fits into the vast urban development plan for the Island of Nantes.

This is a very understated building, whose shape, worked to the extreme, is the main feature.  To minimize the tower’s impact on the street, it was designed in a “boot” shape and discreetly covered in zinc, which was laid down in shingles to create a scaled effect.

Inside, the lobby is notable for its functionality and the diversity of programs that can be offered simultaneously.  This is a place for meetings and conviviality, where the structure’s modularity allows for many types of events thanks to its ephemeral boundaries.

The walls of wooden cladding incidentally serve as a place to park bicycles in suspension, and provide residents with individual lockers in which to store helmets and miscellaneous equipment.
