WAA progress construction on the E' Tower in Eindhoven

WielAretsArchitects Jun 14 '13 0

The E' Tower is located in the Stadium Quarter, an area next to the Phillips Stadium in Eindhoven, which is an integral part of the Stripe S urban plan created by the landscape firm West 8. The original brief for the area includes the E' Tower, the E’ Block, and a slender end piece of the adjacent annex, which are all apartment buildings in this emerging district. A gap between the E' Tower and the annex will define the area's entrance while also providing an outdoor space adjacent to the tower, for use by its inhabitants. With a program of simple apartments, the project deals mainly with the horizontal stacking of slabs, from which projects a series of specifically shaped brises-soleil, creating a constant play of shadow on the façade, itself composed of a semi-structural glazing and sliding panels. Some apartments have an internal conservatory, serving as a balcony during summer, and an extra room during cooler months. All other apartments have their own private balcony.
