The Sails
Gdynia - Poland 

The project is a tribute to the founding fathers of the city, who were fishermen and the marine architecture. This idea is reflected in the 4 main elements of the project; towers, office building, piazza, podiums 

Towers:

The 2 residential towers (120m and 55m) are inspiredfrom the sails of a boat with its shape, curved in all 3 dimensions. The cladding is composed of a “milky” glass that creates a light and translucent envelope.

This year, due to the prevailing global pandemic – Covid1, we realize the importance of having a private outdoor space where one can enjoy the free time. For that reason, all the apartments, from the smallest to the biggest have private balconies which provide a surreal experience between the “sails”.

As a result, this uplifts the value of the apartments and enhances quality of living.

Office Building:

The strategically placed office building, facing the main street, has a shape inspired from the keel of a ship.

The south-east corner is raised height, as a result creating a connection of the inner space of the plot with the mall located on the south.

Piazza:

The curved surface of the office building, creates an organic shape that gives the sense of protection like being in a couch shell.

The seating in the piazza speak the same organic language and seem erupting from the ground and sculpted by the wind.
