Designers at Daniel Libeskind designed a composition of two distinct typologies of housing; the lower villa blocks along the water front and the high-rise towers which overlook them just behind. The artful composition of ever shifting building orientations, along with the differing building typologies, creates an airy, light-filled grouping of short and tall structures. These ever shifting forms create an experience where each level feels unique as it is not in alignment with either the floor below or above. no two alike residences are experienced next to one another or seen from the same perspective.
