Side by Side – Almere Towers
Side by Side: located on the border between the city centre and Weerwater lake, two residential towers strike a key note in the urban landscape of Almere centre. To bolster their landdmark character the facades have a deliberately abstract rendering in industrial glass. Closer up, the mosaic of door and window frames reveal the great wealth of more than 20 different housing types. The plinth boasts a broad spectrum of communal facilities, from marina and winter garden to sauna and gym.
