Rotterdam-based Barcode Architects have designed a new 110-meter-tall triangular shaped residential tower to become an icon in the city’s skyline. The tower, which has been named CasaNova, features a large plinth and a building base which tapers down four stories to meet the ground with a sharp angular form.

Currently, still in the late design phase, this tower will be located in the rapidly developing Maritiem District, where nine other residential buildings have been planned planned to be constructed. CasaNova will aid in the transformation of this area from a quiet business district to a lively mixed-use neighborhood. The site is also connected to Rotterdam’s main art street, and MVRDV's iconic Markthal is located just around the corner.

The plinth of the building is shared with Barcode Architects’ adjacent residential project, The Muse, which is currently under construction. The towers will share a large garden on the fifth floor, where residents from both towers will be able to socialize and share a fitness center, office spaces, and shops. Each floor of CasaNova contains three apartment units with balconies and windows which offer a 300-degree view of the city.

Construction of CasaNova will begin in early 2019, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
