ROME | Torre Eurosky | 155m | 38 fl | Com

TORRE EUROSKY


Eurosky, is a residential tower of 30 floors of apratments + 8 levels of technique area, it will be one of the highest building of Rome. Located in one of the 18 new "metropolitan municipalities" of the city, the "Europarco Castellaccio" one.

Also this new project will contribute to give a modern aspect to the EUR area.
The inspiration for the project was taken from the simple lines, thinking about the medievals towers, that appear in the roman skyline, such as the "Torre delle Milizie".

The granite-cladding, realized with concrete and steel, is measured by regular holes of the balconies, that create a game of shades and lights.

Though it seems a unique building, the scraper is divided into two main parts both served by two pairs of elevators and stairs, linked by some bridges.

The structure can be defined a "grenn scraper" due to its solar panels installations in the last 8 floors that give perfect electrical autonomy to the building.


35 floors ( + 8 floors for the solar panels)

New fascist-style skyscraper in a fascist style area.

Good idea.

On the whole it looks not bad, but the square on top of the left tower looks ugly!

I like this one, and I think it's a good modern icon for Rome.

I'm confused. For over a year SSP has this building listed as Europarco on the Rome diagram, with an antenna on top?

Torre Eurosky, lies exactly near the Europarco complex!

All the project of scraper of Roma, are located in the EUR area.

Doesn't look good at all. Looks like a proposal from the 70s...

I don't like it. Especially in a town known of the colosseum, trevi fountain and the St. Peter's Basilica and many other historical buildings in rome. I espected much more for a tower in a country of high quality desing.
