MareNostrum Residential Building

Aaron Leppanen

Architecture, Building and Structure Design MareNostrum Residential Building by Aaron Leppanen The meaning of the project in classical Latin, is “Our Sea”. Inspired by the movement of the oars of the fleets of the Roman empire is reinterpreted in the façade of the building. Reinforcing this concept, the design team decided to implement soft waves on the façade generating at the same time an experience of movement for the user. Throughout the 8 story residential building, the movement of the façade generates large balconies that allow the interior space to extend to the exterior. Moreover the form has passive sustainability strategies, such as natural light and ventilation.
