A reference to old port areas
Westerschans 1B forms an important urban connection between the living and shopping district of the Westerschans development in Goes. The rounded and transparent shapes of the shopping plinth connects the higher shopping area to the lower car-free waterfront of the Westhavendijk.
The four floors above contain 27 apartments with a large diversity of housing typologies. Six housing types, from standard apartments to luxury penthouses, are all characterized by their splendid waterfront views. All apartments have a private parking lot in the parking garage below, the four penthouses have access to their personal garden or patio.
The colors and materials are derived from the material scheme of the Westerschans development, in this way the area obtains a natural unity. The horizontal accentuation of the volume is specified in the urban plan. We developed this concept into a continuous and curving balcony, which gives the building a powerful identity within the urban ensemble. The curving balconies refer to the omnipresent water, additionally the protruding shape of the waves give prolonged access to southern sunlight.
This project is designed in collaboration with Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur.
