Entitled Basket Apartments, the ten-storey building was completed in autumn 2012, but was officially opened at the end of January this year.

OFIS Arhitekti conceived the building as a series of "spinning and rotating baskets", that each contain a cluster of rooms with private balconies. See more information and images of Basket Apartments in our earlier story.

  • I’d like to see more pictures of the interiors to see how it works from the inside.

    Nice dynamic facade with different solutions from both sides. Would be nice to see the indoor architecture. Of course one of the most important issues is acoustic performance. Beautiful.
