Point of difference

February, 2016

 

Designed for ProWinko By UNStudio and in collaboration with Jaspers-Eyers Architects, Le Toison d’Or is a hybridisation of traditional building-block typology and mixed-use development with retail podium. Le Toison d’Or contains 72 apartments, 13,000 sq m commercial space, a 1040 sq m crèche, 330 parking spaces and an elevated city garden of 2,950 sq m. In order to avoid monolithic qualities, the façade of is broken up by means of variations in texture, depth and the repeating rhythm of a series of curved vertical frames.
