Zecc designed an apartment building with 46 apartments commissioned by housing association Mooiland Vastgoed. The project concerns social housing for people with a need for limited residential care. The building is part of an ensemble of connected buildings and is designed to accent its height in the area. The building has a basement of curved masonry with a broad main entrance area. From the ground up the sculptural masonry transforms itself into an angular freeform with emphasized vertical elements.

A small courtyard, a back entrance on the kitchen side, a hut, a dead tree, garden boots, smells, be in touch with nature, birdsong, animals, a vegetable garden, a shed for tools, a pergola, ivy along the walls, piles of wood, a tree under which to shelter, a forest, an under-growth, a river, an attic, a chicken coop, a bench, a pond, a well, a fountain, a path…
Living outside, space, air, light. How to live the countryside? How do you live in a forest? What are the ambiances? What are the specific characteristics of a habitat in the countryside?

‘I highly doubt, that this apartment can be turned into a decent home’ – said a close relative of the owner, seconds after we first saw this place. I hardly agreed. I loved it. Luckily, the owner – a great innovator, a friend and a fellow dino enthusiast – and I were on the same page about the outcome. This was one of the most complicated structures, I have ever seen, covered by numerous layers of human history and unwanted building materials. We had to take the long road and uncover this beauty and turn it to a contemporary home.

Wow! Sta. is situated in Horinouchi, in the Central Ward of Niigata City – an area where the city center gradually begins to give way to the suburbs. The scenery lining the nearby main road is dominated by large commercial and retail buildings and their accompanying signage.
The businesses, houses and multilevel apartments that sprawl out from Niigata Station constitute this typical inner-city area.
Located just one street back from the main road with its dazzling lights and the din of the traffic, we find an area that is surprisingly calm, unlit by even street lights.

Directly on the Elbe, commanding a prominent position in the HafenCity, stands the Marco Polo Tower right beside the new Unilever headquarters, also by Behnisch Architekten. The 55 m high tower punctuates the end of the route from the inner city out to the new attractions, the Cruise Ship Terminal and the Promenade on Strandkai. In its form and arrangement, it is a unique and remarkable sculptured building, adding to Hamburg’s silhouette on the Elbe. Its 17 above ground levels, each turned a few degrees on their axis, allow all 58 apartments spectacular views over the harbour and the city.
