Colville Estate Towers – 27 Feb 2013
Columnar Towers is a proposal for a residential development of 199 apartments in Hackney, London. The project is part of a masterplan by Karakusevic Carson Architects for the regeneration of the Colville Estate. The high residential density demands of the project brief will inevitably result in large massing. Our proposal attempts to mitigate the effects of this by breaking each tower into a ‘bundle’ of seven smaller towers, or ‘columns’. Each mini-tower is formed by simple ‘stacks’ of single apartments.
