Mandal Slipway Housing Complex
Mandal's former industrial area is to be rejuvenated with an impressive complex of striking wooden houses in a beautiful location where the river meets the sea. The character of the local buildings influences the project, yet as a contemporary interpretation of those values. The housing complex is organized in four residential buildings around a common outdoor area. The three waterfront line buildings are spaced to provide lighting and visibility for the behind building. There is also a great attention to details with roof drainage pipes, door and window frames and other exterior components concealed or understated, so that the property idiom and expression is clean. All apartments have balconies and some rooms are double height so that the surrounding seaviews can be enjoyed.
