The new CasaNova residential tower at the Wijnhaven in Rotterdam recently reached its highest point, and is now 110 meters high.
CasaNova, designed by Barcode Architects, is a residential tower in a special triangular shape. The unusually shaped building takes into account the sightlines of the surrounding towers. Where the tower touches the plinth, the volume rejuvenates over four layers.
The triangular residential tower will be built on top of a five-storey substructure with parking garage, housing, commercial functions and offices. The roof of the substructure provides space for a shared roof garden for the homes of this tower and associated offices, but also for the adjacent tower The Muse (Wijnhaven 69), with which it will be connected.
In addition to the collective roof garden, various shared functions are planned, such as a gym, a communal kitchen, co-working spaces, meeting rooms and hotel rooms that residents can reserve for their guests. The plinth contains catering functions and the central entrance.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
