Inner cities are experiencing a newed boom, the demand for 21st century living spaces in today’s renaissance of urban centralization is on the rise. So for the past few years, many architects have been rediscovering and creatively reinterpreting the aestetic and functional potentials of townhouses. The modern buildings achieve the same functions on the scant inner city plot as their historic archetypes, but distinguish themselves using a contemporary architectural language. Some of the most spectacular projects reach considerable heights and extend the traditional concept of the townhouse to new dimensions.
