Our project for an apartment building on Boulevard Kockelsheuer was published in the November issue of Luxembourg’s ArchiDuc magazine:
Construction has started on London-based architect Andrew Phillips’s first apartment building in Luxembourg. The seven storey building will sit in a terrace overlooking a major new boulevard entering Cloche D’Or near Ban de Gasperich.
Andrew Phillips, previously Design Director at David Chipperfield Architects, is also the master planner for the new residential quarter which will provide 1,000 new dwellings arranged around a generous series of public plazas and courtyard gardens, overlooking parkland along the River Gasperich.
The apartment building’s Limestone façade is screened by a colonnaded veranda of polished pre-cast concrete slabs and turned columns at each floor. These architecturally mediate between the activity of the street and the apartments. The elegance and rigour of the façade arrangement belies the subtle variety of apartment types behind.
Andrew Phillips’s previous experience includes the Museo Jumex in Mexico City, the new MBA School for HEC Paris, the Veles Y Vents building for the 32nd America’s Cup in Valencia and the Café Royal Hotel in London.
