Continental Towers in Stockholm, Sweden by C. F. Møller Architects

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Article source: C. F. Møller Architects

The tower block construction in Stockholm has been planned in connection with the extension of the City Line rail link.

The complex of 100 metres, the equivalent of approximately 30 stories, will include a hotel, offices and possibly housing. The building will be equipped with an entrance to a new station at street level directly opposite the city’s old main railway station, Centralen, and will therefore be a landmark for Stockholm’s new metro.

Amsterdam Tower in Mexico City by JSª

Friday, February 17th, 2012

Article source: JSª

We started by joining six adjacent plots that had development potential, and designed an urban complex of mixed uses: public parking, shops, offices and housing. Our idea was adding new buildings to the existing ones and build housing projects facing the residential area of the Colonia Condesa, and commercial projects facing Insurgentes Avenue, one of Mexico City’s main avenues. This way, access to the apartments is always through the residential neighborhood while access to the other programs is through Insurgentes Avenue. We took into account the adjacent establishments, such as Centro Qi (a gym/spa) –which we also designed– and the bakery El Molino, and we projected a commercial space with parking that could operate integrally with these amenities.
