Lightweight GRC in high-rise
Sky Park is the masterplan for the transformation of a 5.5 hectare big abandoned industrial area in the capital of Slovakia into a huge park with mixed functions for living, working and shopping.
The 786 apartments are located in three residential towers of 31 floors and 104 m high. The remaining 55,000 sqm are housed in a tower of 29 floors (119.6 m high) and an office building that consists of a lower part of 8 floors and a tower part of 19 floors (78 m high).
Double-curved ‘Zaha Hadid’ shapes
Remarkable are the double-curved node elements in GRC by BB fiberbeton, made by using CNC-milled moulds. A total of 53 variants of these nodes have been made, the largest of which are more than 3 x 3 m. The elements have integrated stainless steel stud frames.
