The new storey will be realised in the same style and in harmony with the new facade, so that it will not dominate the appearance of the frontage. The terrace partitions influence the overall look of the facade and add to its rhythmic character. With the addition of the new storey, the overall height of the building will be in line with the height of the surrounding structures. The apartments are accessible via the communal passage/inner lane, which runs on the middle of the roof. In the stillness, with the slightly plastered walls and corten steel boxes containing low and high vegetation, you don’t feel that you are in the middle of the busy Scheldeplein.
Light and spacious
The high ceilings, glass fronts and skylights lend a feeling of space. All the apartments have generous south-facing outdoor spaces. Those on the Geulstraat side have a sheltered terrace with pergola. The five apartments on the Geleenstraat side are provided with a spacious roof terrace.
The apartments have been designed in collaboration with Osiris Hertman Studio and have a high-quality finish with earth tones, wooden floors in hexagonal pattern, brass doors and skimming stone-finished walls and ceilings. The entire apartment is equipped with modular interior- and surface-mounted black and gold spotlights. The luxurious atmospheric kitchen is equipped with Miele built-in appliances.
The apartments have two bathrooms en-suite. The master bathrooms have a separate shower, double sink and lockable toilet. The floor and shower wall are tiled with a marble-effect ceramic tile. The other wet rooms are equipped with a travertine tile.
“Another striking feature in the stylish apartments is the freestanding bathtub in the bedroom.”
Each apartment has its own storage room and a parking space in the garage located on the second floor of the building.
