TORRE ZENIT is a mixed-use building (residential and services) located in Escaldes-Engordany, near the two rivers Valira. It is ON-A’s first project in the Principality of Andorra and offers the opportunity to design an architectural icon and a reference for luxury housing in this region.
UPDATE ON THE CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS OF TORRE ZENIT.
The design was very challenging given the context in which it is located. This is precisely why the BIM methodology was the right choice from the start. Its application throughout the process and the centralisation in a single model of all the information generated by the various stakeholders facilitated a collaborative work mentality and accelerated the creation and development of the project.
We gave preference to the use of industrial elements, not only for economic reasons, but also because it reduces the construction time. The materials and composition of the facade were chosen with energy efficiency, acoustics and integration into the Pyrenean landscape in mind.
It should be noted that throughout the design process we have always looked for the most optimal orientation to enjoy the natural light for as long as possible and to have the most beautiful view of the site. With all this, Zenit Tower offers a sustainable vision with maximum comfort for its residents and users.
