Cascading Brick Arches Feature in Penda’s Residential Tower in Tel Aviv 位於特拉維夫Penda住宅大樓的層疊磚拱門

Penda has released images of its proposed high-rise residential tower in Tel Aviv, featuring brick arches and cascading terraces influenced by the city’s Bauhaus era and the materiality of its Old Town. The 380-foot-high (116-meter-high) scheme will house a range of one to four bedroom apartments, as well as double-height penthouses.

For the scheme’s design, Penda rejected the “generic glass tower” in favor of a form and materiality which responds to Tel Aviv’s sunny Mediterranean climate.

彭達(Penda)發布了其在特拉維夫(Tel Aviv)擬議的高層住宅塔樓的圖像,其中包括受城市包豪斯時代及其舊城區的影響力影響的磚拱和層疊梯田。 380英尺高(116米高)的方案將容納一系列一到四間臥室的公寓,以及雙高的頂層公寓。


The 190,000-square-foot (17,500-square-meter) scheme is defined by its cascading arches, chosen for its historical “shelter” roots in architecture, and its traditional role as a “welcoming gesture” at the entrance to buildings and cities. Together with layered terraces, the rhythmic layout of the arched structure creates a façade which reflects the vividness of Tel Aviv, striking a balance between openness and shelter.

面積為190,000平方英尺(17,500平方米)的方案是由層疊的拱形結構定義的,其選擇源於其在建築中歷史悠久的“庇護所”根源,以及其在建築物和城市入口處的傳統“歡迎姿態”。 拱形結構的節奏佈局加上分層的露台,創造了一個立面,反映了特拉維夫的生動,在開放性和遮蔽性之間取得了平衡。

Encircling the 18 floors of apartments are a ribbon of terraces, acting as shading devices against direct sunlight, and giving outdoor access to every room. Setbacks in the building’s form create two distinctive terraces typologies: roofed ones providing sun protection, and open terraces ideal for landscaping. Privacy of terraces also varies between outbound areas to encourage cross-floor communication, and inbound, private areas.

公寓的18層高高環繞著一排排的露台,可作為遮擋陽光直射的遮蔽裝置,並允許戶外進入每個房間。 建築物形式的挫折創造了兩種獨特的露台類型:帶屋頂的露台提供防曬保護,以及開放式露台,是美化環境的理想選擇。 在出站區域(以鼓勵跨層通信)和入站私有區域之間,梯田的私密性也有所不同。

“We mainly looked to the past and how the previous generation built in Mediterranean regions. Designing in a warm climate is not about maximizing glass-facades and a continues AC-run. It’s about creating a design that offers views on one hand but minimizes its openings to direct sunlight on the other. The arch is an expression of this approach and improves the buildings structural capacities and energy performance at the same time.
-Chris Precht, Co-Founder, Penda”

“我們主要關注過去以及上一代人如何在地中海地區建立。 在溫暖的氣候中進行設計並不是要最大化玻璃幕牆,而是要繼續進行交流運行。 這是關於創建一種一方面提供視圖但另一方面將其開口最小化以將陽光直射的設計。 拱形是這種方法的一種表現形式,可以同時提高建築物的結構能力和能源性能。
-Penda聯合創始人Chris Precht”

The tower is designed in a modular system, allowing structural elements to be prefabricated at lower construction and maintenance costs. The geometry of the building has been heavily influenced by the Bauhaus, with its emphasis on openness, clarity, and rationality exhibited in the clear design language of the arches and lines.

Further inspiration came from the old town of Tel Aviv, with profound masonry such as stone-paved alleys and thick stone walls reflected in the Penda scheme with the timeless craft of hand-laid brickwork.

該塔採用模塊化系統設計,可以以較低的建造和維護成本預製構件。 包豪斯建築(Bauhaus)對建築的幾何形狀有很大的影響,其強調的開放性,清晰度和合理性以清晰的拱形和線條設計語言展現出來。
