TOWERS AS DOMINOES. Six buildings as twin towers. The first two green, glass towers by Diener & Diener architects received the company of towers 3 and 4, designed by David Chipperfield Architects. They were erected out of white, polished concrete elements. The deep terraces and panoramic windows connect the individual apartments with the grand view on the port. Next to them are towers 5 and 6, designed by Tony Fretton Architects, in light-grey and red brick. Thanks to the choice of materials, the towers, despite their scale, fit in with an individual form of housing, and acquire a level of refinement that is normally lacking on this scale.
