Enclasped: Le Toison d’Or by UNStudio

Working in collaboration with the Belgian architects Jaspers-Eyers for ProWinko, UNStudio has designed a mixed-use complex that incorporates not only 72 apartments but also a kindergarten, commercial units, 330 parking spaces and a city garden.

Tall curved elements lend the street façade a vertical articulation, while the rear – the location of the courtyard garden – has a horizontal arrangement. The curved elements at the front enclasp the balconies of the upper-storey apartments like a mantle and at the same time provide appropriate framing for the large shop windows on the ground floor. Provided enough daylight in this way, the respective retail units make a light and inviting impression 

Much attention has been paid in sustainability terms to such aspects as an excellent thermic insulation of the facade, including triple glazing, a high standard of acoustic insulation and use of glass-fibre reinforced concrete.
