314 architecture studio‘s la torre de la nostalgia is a residential building under construction in the heart of glyfada, a coastal suburb on the southern part of athens. the sculptural tower appears strikingly lightweight next to its neighboring typical blocks of flats thanks to its ferrocement construction, a composite material consisting of mortar reinforced with a metal mesh.

drawing from the form of bruno munari’s falkland lamp, the suspended column of light designed in 1964 for italian brand danese, 314 architecture studio has created a dynamic structure with curved walls and irregular openings. with a name that combines a retro nostalgia with a futuristic approach, la torre de la nostalgia is shaped with concrete (ferrocement) and white marble, which manipulate its shape and light conditions. featuring a total area of 460 sqm, the a+ energy efficient tower is divided in five apartments, all equipped with enough privacy and interiors infused with amazing sea views.
