WESTWOOD

westwood

WESTWOOD// With only two units per floor, Westwood could almost be described as “semis-in-the-air” were it not for the fact that here there is no party wall; the central lift lobby acts as a sound buffer on each level. The plan has a freedom and informality that could be mistaken for a low-rise building, and has the added benefit of breaking up the building’s bulk, with niches to conceal the inevitable washing poles. Internally the articulation continues to include split level floors, which allowed restricting internal walls to only those required for privacy. Westwood is topped by a prominent penthouse which projects beyond the rest of the building. Here the roof profile is irregular, paralleling the irregularity of the plan.
