'Apartments Italiëlei' - Antwerp (tender - 3.398 m²)
Urban corner accentuated with 17 apartments in assignment of 'Constructie en Promotie van Immobiliën nv'

This newly built project is located at the corner of the Italiëlei with de ‘Van Aerdstraat’ in Antwerp. A firm grid divides this property into 3 slim sections at the Italiëlei and in 5 sections at the ‘Van Aerdstraat’. Furthermore the volume is structured according to the 'base-body-head' concept with a lively plinth as a 'see through' apartment of 130 m2 with a courtyard and a commercial facility on the corner. The body consists out of the 3 stacked building layers with each 3 'see through' apartments. The cornice of the body is adjusted to the neighbouring buildings of the existing context. The top of the design with its 2 and 3 sections is conceived as the head clearly crowned with a higher building level. The materialisation is a consistent combination of polished matt concrete with frames in anodised bronze coloured aluminium.

'Parkvilla - Boechout‘’ (realized - 3.098 m²)
Redevelopment of industrial park with metal factory BMT into 25 newly built apartments in assignment of Gands nv.

In this suburban context with a park, our design at the time was translated to a compact and dynamic park villa that breaks away from standard apartment buildings. Rings in brown architectonic concrete with a graded profile divide the park villa in horizontal villas. The white facade covering consists out of vertically profiled aluminium sheets that flow into mobile blinds. The shutters create a dynamic field of openness and closedness. This light structure presents itself as a strong horizontal section inbetween. All apartments have access to a spacious indoor terrace with a beautiful park view. The park villa is connected underground with a large parking culminating on the Molenlei next to the railway tracks. Below the park villa individual storage rooms for bicycles and such are provided.
