De Realiteit 18
Architect: Thijs Gerretsen

“Temporary” is what “De Zeiltoren” is all about because of its close link with the outside, the seasons, day/night, sun/moon/stars, clouds/wind/rain.
It has plenty of views:
horizontal, diagonal, vertical, high, low.
There’s a surrounding balcony with sliding-doors and sails for sunscreens, these can increase the living-space (summer) or keep it cosy and warm (winter).
Because of it’s temporary design the tower is easy to build,to repeat, to replace, to move.
The tower has a small footprint and can be placed in a variety of landscapes, or vice-versa, surrounding nature can take its course.
