Barcode Architects has designed a new architectural landmark for the skyline of Rotterdam: CasaNova, the first triangular residential tower in The Netherlands.
The 110-meter-high tower will rise at Wijnhaven 65 and will engage directly with the street, significantly contributing to the revitalization of the area. The building’s unique shape carefully considers sunlight and visual relations with the neighboring towers, resulting in a form that is both contextually sensitive and distinct. CasaNova’s slender tower elegantly meets the plinth by tapering the lower four stories, holding a gracefully balanced pose like a dancer on the tip of their toes.
Construction of CasaNova will begin in early 2019, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
