Peter Pichler建筑事務所設計的位于荷蘭馬爾森的一座35000 m²的塔式高層復合住宅建筑，贏得了一項國際邀請賽。
Peter Pichler Architecture won an international invited competition for the design of a new residential tower complex of 35000 m² in Maarssen, Netherlands.
The new complex consists of approx. 260 apartments, parking garages, public facilities, gym and a running track on the roof. It is located on a main axis between Amsterdam and Utrecht and should act as a social “engine” in the area, which will undergo some major developments within the next years.
Peter Pichler建筑事務所建造兩座looping towers的提議，充分考慮到視野和光照得出的優化幾何結構，保證從后面的辦公室也可以看到河流和馬爾森老城區中心景觀。細長的L形幾何形狀是為了適應場地的特殊情況(北側看景觀，南側向陽)和公寓方位，保證了多樣的視野和光照。兩座傾斜的L型塔交錯分布，這兩座相鄰的建筑都因此獲得更好的視野，且受到的陰影影響最小化。自然形成的露臺獲得了朝向老城區的多樣化視野，并在白天接受最大限度的陽光照射。
PPA´s proposal for two looping towers are the result of an optimized geometry based on views and sunlight. Starting point were massing studies of straight extrusions that are moved towards the end of the plot to guarantee the view from the offices behind towards the river and the old city center of Maarssen. The special situation of the site (north side with view, south side sunlight) and the unsophisticated orientation of the apartments within a straight extruded tower with central core led to a slim L shaped geometry that guarantees multiple views and sunlight. While sloping back the L shaped towers with the lower tower on the west side, better views are generated for adjacent buildings with a minimum shadow impact. The naturally formed terraces generate multiple views towards the old city and achieve a maximum sunlight during the day.
At the podium level the two towers connect in a loop that steps back to create green parks. The interweaving podium strings contain care housing as well as public facilities such as the gym with a running track on the roof.
Most of the apartments are conceived as duplex in order to guarantee the double side view and to have an optimized ratio between GLA and circulation. The duplex typology is expressed in the facade as well which fades from a more closed structure at the street level and opens towards the top.
