Tirana Apartments

The apartment building in Xezhmy Delli in Tirana contains 28 dwellings.

The area where it rises lacks any clear order: gardens and low buildings from the 50s mixed with recent apartment blocks. The Tirana apartments building we propose does not suggest any transformation of the place into a crowded, intense, metropolitan area; it simply contains the required volume, somehow suggesting not to go on with interventions in this area.

Its appearance is voluntarily unfamiliar, almost rude, it does not hide its excessive mass.

This Albanian residential building is the product of this singular condition: banal regarding technologies, bizarre regarding volume, surprisingly generous regarding space. It is a prism aggresively excavated in order to match with building regulations, almost a cast that crystallize in the city the abstract rules of its legal apparatus, discovering how alien these rules are inside of the concrete body of the city.

Tower Design in Tirana
The tower can be seen from the main boulevard entering the city. Seen from that angle, the tower complements the most important monuments of Tirana. Aware of this precarious historical line-up, the tower is designed as a monolith, avoiding the image of the modern glass tower.
