Great news: Westerschans 1B has been nominated for the Betonprijs in the category housing! Due to the current corona measures, the award ceremony has been postponed until the beginning of 2022, so it will still remain exciting for a while.
Jury motivation: “The undulating balconies not only refer to the ubiquitous water, but they also regulate heat and contribute to the sustainable character of this building. They also give residents the opportunity to longer enjoy the evening sun.”
Curious how this unique building was created and executed? Tektoniek has published an extensive article about it: read it here.
