Description  

Studio Libeskind’s first project in Albania, the Magnet housing development, consists of a master plan for a new residential neighborhood within walking distance of Tirana’s city center, along with the design for Eagle in Flight, the first 13,000 square meter tower within the master plan to serve as a catalyst for revitalizing the entire district.

The masterplan was tailored around a complex site that lacked any public streets. Studio Libeskind opted to keep the site car-free and created a system of interconnected green courtyards linked by pedestrian and cycle paths. The buildings around each courtyard are varied in scale, orientation and typology to prevent monotony and maximize light and air. Buildings around the central piazza are to feature retail to help build a vibrant neighborhood.

 

The first building, Eagle in Flight was completed in 2014. The residential building Ara at Magnet was completed in 2019.
