Shigeru Ban has just launched the office’s most recent project in Nieuw Zuid in Antwerp, Belgium, Arch Daily reports. Named Ban, after its creator, the complex puts in place a 25-story residential tower and a separate building, creating a total of 295 residential units. Inspired by the Japanese courtyard garden, the housing project takes on a natural and green area of no less than 6,000 m designed by landscape architect Bas Smets. Featuring Shigeru Ban’s “signature lines in the wood facades,” the project is a hybrid construction of wood, concrete and steel, which is more ecological than a traditional pure concrete structure. Set to be completed by December 2025, construction on the tower has begun, and the final sales phase is now underway.
