dc.description.abstractThis beachfront high-rise, sited in Virginia Beach, Virginia, is inspired by Le Corbusierâ s Unité dâ Habitation in Marseille with floors that switch back to boast views of the Chesapeake Bay and Lynnhaven Inlet. Its large glazed facades are oriented to the west, so residents can enjoy evening sunsets from their living rooms; and to the east, so they can wake up to sunrises from their bedrooms. Its staggered concrete shear walls shield the structure from north winds. The high-rise is comprised of seven towers; each containing sixteen condos arranged over twenty-eight stories. The building features retail and resident services on the ground floor, a five-story parking garage, and a rooftop pool, restaurant, and sun deck.en_US
