DESIGN DESCRIPTION / 设计说明

建筑

The Arte S twin residential towers sit at the base Bukit Gambir, a lush tropical mountain located at the heart of Penang Island off the Western coast of Malaysia.
两栋公寓位于甘密山之麓,这片茂密的热带山地处于马来西亚西海岸附近的槟榔屿中心地带。

The geometry and composition of the towers was inspired the dramatic surrounding land form that mediates between the steeply rising hillside of Bukit Gambier and the coast line of the Penang Strait.
公寓的外形和结构灵感来自于甘密山上升的陡坡和槟城海岸线周边壮观的地貌。

The 2 towers and the podium are articulated by the curvilinear movement of balconies, terraces and pools that echo the way man has occupied Penang’s mountainous terrain over time. The mountain landscape has been interpreted as a series of layered flat surfaces that resemble steps, a graduated terracing of the building podium and its twisting towers is the signature of the Arte S project.
两座塔楼和裙房通过阳台,露台和游泳池之间的优美曲线相连接,与人们长期居住在山岭地区的生活方式相呼应。山地景观被诠释为一系列类似于台阶的层状平面,建筑裙房表面阶梯式的露台和扭曲的塔楼成为该项目的醒目标志。

The geometry of the two towers was generated by the extrusion of an elliptical floorplate, augmented by the addition of a waveform brise-soleil that is subtly rotated at each floor level to achieve the building’s twisted appearance.
两座塔楼的外形由椭圆形楼面板挤压产生,通过在每个楼层巧妙增设旋转的波形遮阳板,以实现建筑物的旋转外形。

The Western tower sits closer to the mountain, climbing to 50 storeys, it is the third tallest tower on Penang and offers spectacular views towards the ocean. The shorter of the 2 towers rises 32 storeys from the layered podium. The geometry of both towers steps back at their upper most levels to create penthouses sculpted from the final 3 floorplates.
西面的公寓更靠近群山,可攀登至50层,是槟城第三高的塔楼并可欣赏到壮观的海景。 2栋塔楼中较矮的一栋从层叠的裙房上升至32层。 塔楼的高区户型向内缩进,以创造出最高三层楼板所雕刻出的顶级豪宅感受。

The taller tower has a sky garden at level 35 that incorporates two pebble-form recreational “resident club” pods. The larger pod can accommodate up to 60 people for events, the smaller hanging pod houses a Jacuzzi.
较高的塔楼在35层有一个空中花园,内有两个鹅卵石形状的吊舱供居民娱乐消遣。 较大的吊舱可容纳多达60人的活动,较小的吊舱配有按摩浴缸。

Together the pods create a dramatic visual signature for the development whilst offering the residents spectacular views across Georgetown and the Strait of Penang.
这些吊舱共同为项目创造了一个引人入胜的视觉特征,同时为居民提供了乔治城和槟城海峡对面的壮丽景色。

The design provides a variety of apartment types for buyers. Future flexibility is achieved with column free and beam free apartment spaces that facilitate interior adjustments as tenant requirements change.
该设计为买家提供了多样性的公寓类型。 公寓未来的空间灵活性通过无柱和无梁的开敞空间得以实现,可随着租户要求的变化而进行内部调整。

Designed for tropical living the units are orientated to bring in light and air without the need for air-conditioning.
针对居住在热带的住户设计的住房都可透光及通风,在最大程度上降低空调使用需求。

All common areas are naturally ventilated and day-lit.

Landscape
景观

The lushly planted perimeter gardens and podium levels shroud the building’s car park and takes advantage of the tropical climate to merge naturalistic tropical planting with the building’s geometry. This result is layered, comfortable and shaded pool terraces supplemented by an organic form gymnasium pod. The green layering of the terraces continues to form a distinctive street presence and address for the development that has human scale and lush texture.
郁郁葱葱的周边花园和平台层覆盖了公寓的停车场,并利用热带气候将自然热带植物与公寓的外形融为一体。层状的,舒适的,林荫遮蔽的泳池露台通过有机形式的可健身吊舱进行补充。 绿色分层式的露台继而形成了街道外观以及整个项目宜人宜景的名片。

“In the early residential work of architect like Mies van der Rohe he created a new ground level by elevating the first floor. In Malaysia many residential developments sit atop ugly car parks” says Stephen Pimbley. “We wanted to capture the value of the Mies idea by lifting the piano nobile to create a beautiful landscaped communal space for the residents, that steps down as a series of green terraces to the primary street elevation of the development, shrouding the car parking facilities in a manner that is consistent and sympathetic with the layered terracing of the apartment towers” he added.
思邦合伙人Stephen Pimbley说道,“像Mies van der Rohe这样的建筑师在早期的住宅工作中,他通过提升首层来创造一层新的地面。在马来西亚,许多住宅开发项目建在可怕的停车场上。”
“我们希望通过捕获Mies设计理念的价值,为居民创造出一个美丽的园景公共空间,从一定程度上遮盖停车场设施,使公寓塔楼和分层式的露台能够和谐一致”。
