Levsnb stachek 19 1

Stachek is an ensemble of 80,000 m² GFA with apartments, commercial spaces and underground parking. According to the masterplan, also by LEVS, the urban layout is a cluster of sculptural buildings within a large urban block structure. The existing green character was starting point to design six urban villas in a green setting that are surrounded by four L-shaped blocks defining the four corners of the plot. The sculptural appearance of the buildings is the result of a grid-less façade with distinctive wood-like aluminium volumes on the top. White stucco forms a neutral background for large, randomly positioned windows and loggias or balconies that give the buildings a residential character. The height of the buildings varies from seven to nine floors including a setback of one or two storeys which visually lowers the buildings. On the top floor every apartment has its own half-transparent exit box with a room to access the private green roof terrace. Three height accents of seventeen storeys crown the building ensemble and make it visible from all over the neighbourhood.

The sketch design of the first phase is finished, the start of construction works is planned for this summer.
