The House with Bridges

Best Implemented Project of Residential Estate

About the project
The House with Bridges is a landmark and reference point of the European Riverfront. The bridges between the sections make the shape of the house eye-catching and recognizable. Architects modified its urban planning concept. Instead of dividing the building perimeter into two parts, as had been initially planned, the architects split it into four parts.
Adding slots at the edges but not in the middle of facades resulted in the four blocks of flats emerging from the closed perimeter of the building cluster. They are joined with a podium at the bottom and terraces of penthouses at the top. The openings between the blocks act as arches merging the inner space of the yard with the world outside. The name of the building — the House with Bridges — was coined thanks to its terraces. The terraces on the bridges are shared between two or three flats and are designed as patios. Accessible from the flats, they have an open top and panoramic glazing overlooking either the river, or the yard.
