NYON

The basis in the architecture of NYON was to reimagine the typical residential tower typology. Its design focuses on a celebration of the human scale at ground level, and combined with its volumetric approach, the arrival experience is reminiscent of the distinct East Coast identity, a throwback to old times. The introduction of the romance of the past does not compromise on NYON’s upscale comfort. Instead, it is precisely this juxtaposition that enhances and brings to life the development as a whole. Walking through, one will find that the spaces are layered, progressing and alternating from enclosed to open to create a dynamic sense of space for residents.

Our site investigation showed the generally flamboyant and almost ostentatious nature of the new buildings surrounding the site, competing for attention. Site response would have to be strategically worked through. As a result, the design of NYON takes a step back, and stands out within its context thanks to the contrasting and pared-back approach to its form and facade. The residential tower - with its pure, linear, white blocks - is designed as a blank canvas, a starting point and a clean slate for new residents to imprint their new lives onto.
