Altruistic Panorama Apartments Panorama Apartment Building Burgas Apartment Building Apartment Building Burgas

This high-density structure is located on a busy street between the town and the seaside park. A system of horizontal stripes of reflective screens gives passers-by the opportunity to take a glimpse of the sea just behind the trees.

The inclination of the screens differs in a way that there is always at least one reflection of the sea visible no matter the position of the viewer. Thus the spectacular panorama is altruistically revealed not only to the owners but also to passers-by. In long-distance observation, a secondary camouflage effect of the facade emerges to blur the obligatory scale and shape (both in plan and section) of the building.

The layout of the plans provides every apartment with a sea-view living space and south-oriented bedrooms. The transparent elevator visualizes the vertical progression from the underground spaces through the sea-view between the steps of the stair to the top of the observation tower.

Altruistic Panorama Apartment Building is one of three Mies Van Der Rohe 2009 Award nominated projects by I/O architects

The other two are:

Liulin Apartment Building in Sofia
The new building is on the boundary between two periods and between the city and nature. It completes the complex, gives it a new face and stares at the iconic view of Vitosha Mountain.

Bistrica House
Located in a small mountain village, now a quarter of Sofia, the house is a simple volume floating over the steep triangular plot and a space intended as a martial arts training hall hidden in the slope.

A series of car free hill towns in an unspoilt setting of oak forests, meadows and river gorges, the development will create a year-round community for up to 15,400 residents.

Sofia Multifunctional Complex
Taking the circle – the symbol of round table democracy – as the starting point, the three primary functions of the buildings (European Union Agency, Knowledge Centre, and Exhibition Centre) were then expressed. The circle then evolved during the design process to take the form of a curved triangle, accommodating each of these different building types and responding to the natural contours of the site at the edge of the mountains.

Sofia Tower Building
Design: Aedes studio

The concept of the building has two points of departure: analysis of its location and analysis of its function. In order to analyze the location we set off to it from Sveta Nedelia Square and along Al. Stamboliyski Blvd.
