CF Moller's Nieuw Zuid tower in Antwerp
Variety of apartment types is part of ‘mini-communities’ strategy
CF Moller has been appointed to design a new residential and mixed-use tower in Antwerp.
The building in the Belgian city will contain 116 apartments of varying sizes to encourage a range of occupants – from student shared housing to family homes and live-work units – grouped into ‘vertical mini-communities’.
The 24-storey tower in the emerging Nieuw Zuid area close to the river Schelde south of the historic city centre will also contain shops, offices and collective spaces including bike repair facilities and a dining room.
There are also 5,000sq m of balconies, winter gardens and roof terraces.
“The result is a light grid enveloping the volume, structuring the facades and connecting the vertical mini-communities,” said partner Julian Weyer. “Every visible compartment represents a cluster of similar apartments opening towards the balcony spaces.”
The height and massing of the building were dictated by the development plan for Nieuw Zuid.
