The Cloud: New Luxury Twin Towers in Seoul
MVRDV recently unveiled their plans for a new luxury residential complex in Seoul, Korea, which features two twin skyscrapers joined in the middle by a pixelated cluster. Named The Cloud, the luxury high rises would be located within the Yongsan Dreamhub project.
The cluster of blocks in the center provides space for public and private gardens, green roofs, and other amenities for residents. Moving the leisure areas off the ground floor up to the middle frees up space on the street level for public gardens and more green space. Natural daylighting, cross ventilation and green roofs also differentiate this project from other luxury high-rises. Natural daylighting and cross ventilation play an important role in all of the apartments. Construction of the towers is expected to be completed by 2015.
