The building has a steel structure with columns shaped like trees and it contains 63 units. Each loft is different from the others and thanks to all the trees and potted plants, living in any of these units is like being in a tree house. Irregular terraces wrap around the apartments and the top floor has its very own green roof. In addition to looking wonderful, the trees and the plants help reduce site and noise pollution. The building uses geothermal energy for the irrigation.
Spectrum Apartments by Kavellaris Urban Design
You can find this eye-catching apartment building somewhere in Australia and when you see it its image gets impregnated in the brain. Don’t imagine anything too crazy. It’s a pretty simple building but it sits on a piece of land with three frontages. The architects at
The thing that makes this apartment building special, however, isn’t that. It’s the geometric facade pattern that has each balcony placed at a slightly different angle than the others. Moreover, each balcony features a bright and vivid color and thus this facade becomes a rainbow of colors. There’s also something else that stands out but you’d have to enter the building to see it. There’s an internal circulation area which is open to the sky. It’s a feature that brings in additional light, natural ventilation and lets plants grow in a suitable environment.

The building is situated in Istanbul and its facade has this intertwining, vine-like pattern that makes the structure stand out while sending a powerful message. The intertwining elements form balconies and go all the way up to the roof where there’s a garden.

The units are structured on three levels that form three concentric rectangular rings. At the core of each floor are the circulation and service spaces and that leaves room for the living, dining and sleeping areas on the outermost layer where they get to take in all the natural light and the panoramic views thanks to their floor-to-ceiling windows. All three floors are wrapped in balconies that form the dark metal rims that frame the building.
The Amsteloft project by WE architecten
How cool would it be to find an apartment building for sale that’s still in the construction phase and allows its future residents to customize every aspect of their future homes? Such opportunities are quite rare. When they designed the Amsterloft building,
The inspiration for the project came from converted warehouses, churches and other similar buildings which have been transformed into homes. The desire in this case was to offer the residents the option to adapt and transform the apartments as needed. The apartment building features a concrete frame that divides it into compartments and these frames can be altered. They can go from a four-bedroom family apartment to a two-bedroom holiday retreat.

The terraces differ in shape from floor to floor and they create an undulating facade appearance, almost as if the building had water ripples on it, hence the name. The sculptural appearance of the tower and its size are the reasons why it stands out so much. Other cool features related to the design and the structure of the tower include the fact that it has a green roof that includes an outdoor pool, a running track, gardens, fire pits and a yoga terrace.
