Matching the undergoing change in Ecuador’s capital, Quito, one of our favorite designers – Marcel Wanders – took it upon himself to create an eco-friendly and nature-inspired interior for the future YOO Residential Tower. The 3D designs so far present us with an otherworldly and incredible structure. Keep scrolling and see what we’re talking about!
The YOO Residential Tower project in Quito will be the result of a collaboration Arquitectónica, Uribe & Schwarzkopf and Wanders & YOO. Envisioned as an ‘urban sculpture’, the 19-storey slender residential tower will no doubt have a memorable interior. Let’s check it out!
The shifted levels produce a movement that undulates up towards the sky, giving a different character in comparison to all the schemes built up in this central area of the city.
Marcel Wanders‘ vision for the interior is a tribute to Ecuadorian flora and fauna that has unfolded into verdant spaces designed to be lived. We can also understand where the designer has drawn his inspiration from: earth, air and fire. These elements will be captured in the earth tones used, natural light, sensations of serenity and interior details displaying crafts, patterns and colors.
Multiple sports courts will be available for residents to play different sports such as volleyball, basketball and football!
In addition to using natural, low ecological-impact materials, Wanders will develop ways to create smarter living spaces. Each apartment was designed to minimize solar impact. Light and movement sensors were installed for energy efficiency, while green terraces in outside areas minimize construction’s impact and transparent glass serves to optimize lighting. Everything in this futuristic building was thought to be as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible.
This residential building is still being conceived, but once it is finished we believe it’ll probably be one of the greatest masterpieces in Ecuador’s beautiful capital. We can’t wait to see the end result of this incredible green architecture example!
And this is it for today. We invite you to explore DESIGN IN VOGUE on Pinterest boards for more inspirations about the City of Light and also about Paris events, arts, and design world.
