Riverview residential complex façades

Best Implemented Façade or Interior Project Using Ceramics

About the project
Riverview project was inspired by both the Hanseatic architecture and the eclectic burgher architecture with the aim of creating a modern and timeless development characterised by minimalistic details with high quality finish. The buildings’ structure is based mainly on reinforced concrete frame structures with particular focus on the building envelope which had to provide relevant anchorage and support the load of façade bricks. The aspect of locality was taken into account when choosing materials and reflected in cooperating with a Polish brickyard seated near Łódź in order to shorten the supply chain. The complex has wooden rafter roofs that are covered with ceramic roof tiles with a minimalistic, simple and flat form. The buildings feature cavity walls and ventilated façades, while the majority of the complex has the exterior finish of bricks manufactured at a brickyard with a one-hundred-year-old history. The designers took a modern approach by using minimalistic details and ensuring high-quality workmanship.
