The project for New Bund District mixed use block consists of two different volumes. The first one, smaller, gives place to a fire-station. The other one was planned as a massive volume, a seven floor of mixed use building of great built depth. AS+ proposal wants to put in relation both scales, and those with the urban fabric that will be built in the surroundings, even bigger in scale. Making this ensemble technically relevant and its composition suitable is the main architectonic purpose of the present project.
