Spinning Tower, Almere
Spinning tower, Almere NL, Project Team: René van Zuuk , Danilo Stolif, Jan Heimer, Design: 2018-2020
The Spinning Tower is an exclusive ten-storey residential tower. Its shape is made up of five segments that revolve around a core. Each apartment rotates relatively to the underlying apartment. As a result, the balconies do not lie above another but are staggered on the facade. The first and second floors, house a duplex apartment. Apartments cover the surface of the third to the eighth floor, while a penthouse occupies the ninth and tenth floor.
Each tower segment is designed in such a way that it is possible to cut several floors from one EPS block. The balconies are special elements, and therefore have to be cut separately. By working with EPS, it is possible to provide the balconies with integrated benches and planters. The facade finish is from AcrylicOne, while the top layer is from clear polyester, coated with aluminium powder. This creates a seamless, silver-colored tower.
