Architecture and Home Design | Centro Towers, The Skyhome Expression by Hotson Bakker Architect

December 25, 2016 By: Jason Marie Category: Без рубрики

Centro Towers, the Skyhome Expression, designed by Hotson Bakker Architect. Located in Richmond, BC, Kanada. Aiming to reinvigorate the tower form by inventing a new kind of housing, the “skyhome”, Centro takes advantage of the quality of life present in townhouse living. The skyhome expression includes multi-foor space applied to a vertically stacked form and is organized with the lowest (soft) wood edge at the base, an intermediate darker band and a light metal and glass expression at the top. This division creates a dialogue with the tower facade treatment.

Amenity and service spaces are provided on the frst and second foors of the tower. The site also incorporates a parkade with a green roof. The rooftop space includes exercise facilities, garden space, a play area and space for outdoor eating. This level is divided with a dramatic change in grade from south to north. The amenity spaces are grouped in a way that supports the pragmatic, social and spiritual aspects of the site.
