Located in the center of Rotterdam, immediately adjacent to the Bijenkorf department store by Marcel Breuer, the tower comprises a hybrid of urban programs disposed in three volumes of similar height but varying width. The volume that meets the ground, which rises to the height of the Bijenkorf store, houses a fashion store and parking garage, while the two upper volumes that rise above the department store contain apartments.

The two residential volumes are shifted with respect to the central circulation core, resulting in two primary apartment layouts, and all studios and short-stay apartments are completely fitted with the LaCucina Alessi kitchen as well as the Alessi Il Bagno dOt bathroom fixtures and fittings – thus the studios can be moved into directly after purchase. Save this picture!© Jan BitterSimilar to the Breuer building, the façade, of alternating glass and aluminum panels, is not related to the floor levels or the individual functions but to the larger volumes, with cantilevered balconies clustered in lines along the façade creating shadows that give the building a larger, urban scale. Save this picture!© Jan BitterProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse Awards 2012ArticlesadAPT NYC Request for ProposalsArticlesProject locationAddress:Hennekijnstraat 50, 3012 Deelgemeente Centrum, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.
