Mercedes Benz Tower Proposal – design by OFIS, Architects
5 Mar 2010
Mercedes Benz Tower, Yerevan
All Seasons Tent Tower – Mercedes Benz Hotel Tower
Competition entry: 2010
Location: Yerevan, Armenia
The prominent location and dominating position with biblical Mt. Ararat as background “wallpaper” represents a chance for unique rearrangement with its own identity and could become a symbol and landmark of contemporary architecture in the city of Yerevan. The mixture of programs and relations inside the program calls for complex organisation – both inside and outside.
The concept reinstates two terraced cylindrical towers connected in the ground floor embraced with green tent-shape layer.
Higher tower is hotel and business centre, lower is occupied with apartments.
Public program is connecting the towers, here shopping, exhibition and restaurants are combined with hotel lobby and business entrance.
Parking is mainly in garage under the ground floor, part of the fast parking and taxi/bus drop off are outside at the Plato.
Structural facade skin is covering the terraces of towers, creating openings and full-structural elements.
The facade is a metal mesh that represents landscape element that is rising from the Plato.
With its present also corresponds during the seasons:
In summer the mesh is covered by greenery that is planted at the fence of the terraces.
In winter it is white and partly covered with snow. In the garden cafe is located with sitting area. With lighted windows glowing from behind it gets festive look.
Circle shape of the towers also correspond circulars and round structures specific for Yerevan urban tissue.
