Elegant residential tower blocks for an up-and-coming neighbourhood | The Metropolitans are a new landmark in the Leutschenbach neighbourhood. The two residential tower blocks designed by Baumschlager Eberle Architekten are eye-catching reference points in this rapidly developing district in the north of Zurich. The distinguishing feature of the 60-metre-high buildings is the light, curtain wall facade of limestone concrete, which gives them a clear structure. The loggias ensure residents a considerable degree of privacy. The spacious apartments extend from front to back or are positioned over a corner. A sky lounge on the roof broadens the impressive view from the apartments to an overwhelming 360-degree panorama.
