MareNostrum Residential Building

The meaning of the project in classical Latin, is “Our Sea”. Inspired by the movement of the oars of the fleets of the Roman empire is reinterpreted in the façade of the building. Reinforcing this concept, the design team decided to implement soft waves on the façade generating at the same time an experience of movement for the user. Throughout the 8 story residential building, the movement of the façade generates large balconies that allow the interior space to extend to the exterior. Moreover the form has passive sustainability strategies, such as natural light and ventilation.

Aaron Leppanen can be considered a true representative of the creative industries. He is a designer, architect and an entrepreneur, and his work has been realised as museums, high-rises and custom made homes. With experience stretching not only countries, but continents, he has become a pioneer, and has developed a knack for using local materials, know-how and labour to innovate both in design and in process. One of his areas of focus is to create forms with parametric parameters and applying it to local construction settings, thereby turning limitations into strengths and opportunities. The creation of icons through form has, in particular, been a recurring aspect of Aaron’s work. His designs achieve the best of both worlds: he creatively challenges conventionality, while still achieving efficient functionality.
