A privileged location
in luxembourg city
The "Route d'Arlon" is one of the main axes leading to the center of Luxembourg City. It links Belgium and the west of the Grand Duchy to the Parc Municipal in the heart of the city.
ICN Development and Tralux Immobilier, in partnership with the architectural firm Arquitectonica, are building UpSide, an upmarket mixed-use development just a step away from the city centre, including flats, penthouses, townhouses, landscaped gardens on the ground floor, roof terraces with an uninterrupted view of the neighbouring Val-Sainte-Croix district, and offices.
The complex, on a human scale and ideally located, benefits from an optimal exposure for the greatest comfort of its occupants.
A well-known architect
For this project, ICN and Tralux Immobilier chose to selected the prestigious international architectural firm, ARQUITECTONICA, who proposes a modern architecture that blends perfectly with the urban environment.
Founded in Miami in 1977 by Bernardo Fort-Brescia and Laurinda Spear, ARQUITECTONICA explores the complex challenges of as-built and natural environments, developing solutions using the balance of modern aesthetics and an ecologically sensitive practice of creating value and identity. ARQUITECTONICA's philosophy is based on the principle of preserving the geographical and cultural character of the site, its natural and human attributes, which characterise and differentiate it.
For the UpSide project, the juxtaposition of the new volumes and the preserved façade creates a dialogue, giving a perfect contemporary spirit to the whole. Large square windows punctuate the northern façade on the "Route d'Arlon" with great elegance. Along the street, the different buildings of the UpSide project preserve the rhythm of the existing villas, while setting their facades in a modern context.
