Green at heart – in downtown Utrecht, an asymmetrical pair of towers for living, working and relaxing form a green island in a rising urban environment.

綠色的心臟 – 在烏得勒支市中心,一個不對稱的塔樓,生活,工作和放鬆,在崛起的城市環境中形成一個綠色的島嶼。

By 2050, almost 90% of Europeans will live in a city. Given the increasing density of our urban environments, how can we maximize our exposure to fresh air and green spaces? Wonderwoods is our answer to that question. This non-identical pair of towers combines high-density living and working with a vertical park, adding a verdant, outdoorsy dimension to the buzzing heart of Utrecht.

Wonderwoods is a co-production from MVSA Architects and Stefano Boeri Architetti. Each office designed one of the towers along the same vegetation-rich, transparent and sustainable lines, with the resulting buildings – related yet different – boosting the diversity and dynamism of the project.

到2050年,將近90%的歐洲人將居住在一個城市。 鑑於我們的城市環境密度不斷增加,我們如何才能最大限度地利用新鮮空氣和綠色空間? Wonderwoods是我們對這個問題的回答。 這座不相同的塔樓結合了高密度的生活和垂直公園的工作,為烏得勒支嗡嗡作響的中心增添了青翠的戶外氣息。

Wonderwoods是MVSA Architects和Stefano Boeri Architetti的聯合製作。 每個辦公室都沿著相同的植被豐富,透明和可持續的線路設計了一座塔樓,由此產生的建築物相關但又不同 – 促進了項目的多樣性和活力。

Building a mindset
Today, 54% of the global population live in urban areas. By 2050 this number is expected to reach 85% in the developed world (source: United Nations: World Urbanization Prospects). As our planet undergoes the largest wave of urban growth in history, we urgently need solutions to help nature flourish in the city and restore our connection with it.

Wonderwoods creates a healthy urban microclimate in the heart of Utrecht, building a harmonious balance between nature and the urban environment.

Trees and plants on and around the towers will breathe in carbon dioxide and other harmful gases and breathe out oxygen. They will also absorb pollutants such as dust, pollen and exhaust fumes, massively improving the air quality.

The trees will also reduce noise pollution and energy usage in the homes by providing shade and lowering the temperatures in summer. In winter, they’ll shield the buildings – and streets below – from winds.

如今,全球54%的人口居住在城市地區。 到2050年,發達國家的這一數字預計將達到85%(來源:聯合國:世界城市化前景)。 由於我們的星球經歷了歷史上最大的城市增長浪潮,我們迫切需要解決方案來幫助自然在城市中蓬勃發展並恢復與之相關的關係。


塔樓和周圍的樹木和植物將吸入二氧化碳和其他有害氣體,並呼出氧氣。 它們還會吸收粉塵,花粉和廢氣等污染物,大大改善空氣質量。

通過在夏季提供遮蔭和降低溫度,樹木還將減少家中的噪音污染和能源使用。 在冬季,他們將保護建築物 – 以及下面的街道 – 免受風的侵襲。


Instead of a single, massive volume, two volumes are created.

The two towers are based on the idea of the relationship between nature and technology. They are individually distinct but like-minded.

Wonderwoods is more than just two buildings, it’s a blueprint for harmonious cohabitation with nature in the heart of a city. The ultimate goal is to encourage a healthy balanced lifestyle.


這兩座塔樓基於自然與技術之間關係的理念。 他們各自獨特但志同道合。

Wonderwoods不僅僅是兩座建築,它還是城市中心與大自然和諧共處的藍圖。 最終目標是鼓勵健康均衡的生活方式。

“Green oasis in the middle of the city”



A dynamic relationship between the two towers animates the design. Stefano Boeri Architetti’s Tower is defined by angular forms and repeating horizontal lines, whereas MVSA Architects’ tower features smoothly curving corners and a vertical rhythm. Both towers share abundant green elements and a clear structure of terrace-like, stepped levels, clearly articulating the various aspects of the program – offices, residential and public and commercial spaces – over a combined total floor space of 65,000 m2.

兩座塔樓之間的動態關係激發了設計的靈感。 Stefano Boeri Architetti的塔由角形和重複的水平線定義,而MVSA Architects的塔具有平滑彎曲的角落和垂直節奏。 兩座塔樓共享豐富的綠色元素和清晰的階梯式樓梯結構,清晰地表達了該項目的各個方面 – 辦公室,住宅和公共及商業空間 – 總面積為65,000平方米。


Tower I is ‘introvert’. It is covered in trees, creating what architect Stefano Boeri, the Milan-based architecture firm renowned worldwide for its innovative Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest), describes as ‘muted’ architecture. Nature is surrounding the architecture.

The façade of the around 90-metre tower will host around 360 trees and 9,640 shrubs and flowering plants: the equivalent to 1 hectare of woodland. Annually, it will absorb around 5,400kg of CO2 and produce around 41,400kg of oxygen.

The Boeri tower is a model for a sustainable residential building; a project for metropolitan reforestation that contributes to the regeneration of the environment and biodiversity while reducing urban sprawl.

The tower is an Urban rising from the ground, respecting and enhancing the sizes of the building envelop. It’s four overlaid facades define, in fact, a rotation of the body which, arising, detaches progressively itself from the alignment of the Croeselaan street pathway to place itself according to an East/West orientation. The facades of this tower are mutant as for chromatic composition and variation of biological mass thickness, varying according to the season and sunlight incidence.

塔我是“內向的”。它被樹木覆蓋,創造了建築師Stefano Boeri,這家總部位於米蘭的建築公司因其創新的Bosco Verticale(垂直森林)而享譽全球,被描述為“靜音”建築。大自然圍繞著建築。





Tower II, the MVSA tower, is the opposite. Here, the verdant greenery is located on the inside and from there, goes outside. This makes it more ‘extravert’ in character.

Our approximately 70-metre tower was designed with a greenhouse aesthetic in mind and features many (winter) gardens and naturally-lit atriums. Green emerges from the inside-out: gigantic windows open on summer days to allow the nature inside to connect with the nature outside.

MVSA塔的塔II是相反的。 在這裡,青翠的綠色植物位於里面,從那裡到外面。 這使得它在性格上更加“外向”。

我們的大約70米高的塔樓在設計時考慮了溫室美學,並設有許多(冬季)花園和自然採光的中庭。 綠色從內到外出現:夏日開放的巨大窗戶讓內部的大自然與外面的自然聯繫起來。

he MVSA Tower is finished in sleek, tactile and sustainable materials, with ceramic elements nodding to Utrecht’s rich craft history. The staggered height of the building creates a spectacular 2,200 m2 terrace nurturing an abundance of trees and plants. This luxuriant green oasis moulds the experience of the building inside, too. Wonderwoods houses several winter gardens of which some have folding doors, allowing them to be opened up to the outdoors. Residents have access to a 200-m2 public greenhouse and office workers can enjoy a 12-m-high atrium on the second floor. The inviting plinth on which the building sits houses a variety of strategically placed facilities, creating a sense of scale and erasing the border between public and private. An ‘experience gallery’, bike-hire shop, tea garden, healthy snack bar, organic supermarket, wellness gym and live-in ateliers encircle Wonderwoods’ façade.

MVSA Tower採用時尚,觸感和可持續材料製成,陶瓷元素點綴於烏得勒支豐富的工藝歷史。 交錯的建築高度創造了一個壯觀的2,200平方米的露台,培育了豐富的樹木和植物。 這個繁茂的綠色綠洲也塑造了建築內部的體驗。 Wonderwoods擁有幾個冬季花園,其中一些有折疊門,可以打開戶外。 居民可以使用200平方米的公共溫室,辦公室工作人員可以在二樓享受12米高的中庭。 建築所在的引人注目的基座設有各種策略性的設施,營造出規模感,消除了公共與私人之間的邊界。 “體驗畫廊”,自行車租賃店,茶園,健康小吃店,有機超市,健身房和圍繞Wonderwoods外牆的現場工作室。

“The soul of this project is its concern for the wellbeing of occupants and visitors”



With its combination of exciting and functional architecture, a high sustainability index and luxuriant greenery, Wonderwoods will define the new area around the Jaarbeurs designated as the Healthy Urban Quarter (HUQ) by the rapidly growing city of Utrecht. Located on the Jaarbeurs Boulevard, which is traversed by 1.5 million pedestrians annually, Wonderwoods form an important visual connection between the large-scale development around Central Station and the more intimate dimensions of the Beurskwartier.

Apart from apartments and offices Wonderwoods will house healthy restaurants, shops, a fitness area, education facilities, bike parking places and a public leisure space and presents itself as the new healthy centre of Utrecht.

憑藉令人興奮的功能性建築,高可持續性指數和茂密的綠色植物,Wonderwoods將在快速發展的烏特勒支市中定義為Jaarbeurs周圍的新區域,被指定為健康城市區(HUQ)。 Wonderwoods位於Jaarbeurs大道,每年橫跨150萬名行人,形成了中央火車站周圍大規模開發與Beurskwartier更為私密的維度之間的重要視覺聯繫。

Organic architecture
Wonderwoods will be a shining example of the architecture of tomorrow.

It will be built with nature in mind. Ecological principles will be woven throughout the fabric and structure of the two towers.

The vegetation provides natural shade. Trees and shrubs on the roofs and balconies keeps the heat out during summer – and in during winter.

Ample daylight is optimised thanks to the smart use of glass surfaces in the architecture: areas that require little daylight have been placed in the centre of the complex.

The vegetation throughout acts as a natural sound barrier to foster a calm, relaxed atmosphere.

Green transportation by a mobility concept for users of the building is also integral to our concept. We will therefore offer together with We Drive Solar the use of electric cars, e-bikes and bicycles and provide ample parking and charging stations.


它將以自然為本。 生態原則將貫穿整個兩座塔樓的結構和結構。

植被提供自然色調。 屋頂和陽台上的樹木和灌木在夏季和冬季保持熱量。



通過移動概念為建築用戶提供綠色交通也是我們理念的一部分。 因此,我們將與We Drive Solar一起提供電動汽車,電動自行車和自行車的使用,並提供充足的停車和充電站。

Planetary and human health
Wonderwoods’ lush gardens and vertical forest allow some 10,000 trees, shrubs and flowers to flourish – the equivalent of an entire hectare of woodland. The greenery absorbs 5,400 kg of CO2 a year, while simultaneously producing 41,400 kg of oxygen.

Wonderwoods is sustainable in other ways, too. With the aimed WELL Building Standard™ certification for residential and BREAAM Excellent certification for offices, the building supports both planetary and human health. Its future-proof design is flexible and adaptable, ensuring a long life

Wonderwoods鬱鬱蔥蔥的花園和垂直的森林可以讓大約10,000棵樹木,灌木和花朵繁茂 – 相當於整公頃的林地。 綠化每年吸收5,400千克二氧化碳,同時產生41,400千克氧氣。

Wonderwoods在其他方面也是可持續的。 通過針對住宅的WELL Building Standard™認證和BREAAM辦公室的優秀認證,該建築支持行星和人類健康。 其面向未來的設計靈活且適應性強,確保使用壽命長
