De Metropool

From empty space to landmark

We have designed a 70 metre tall residential tower in a place where currently the access to a parking garage, an entrance to a dance club and the loading bay of the Hilton are located. The of empty spaces and incomplete urban blocks can result in improved quality of the public realm. This was such a gap in the urban block that we, in close consultation with the users, proposed to fill. The tower will be characterised by a horizontal play of lines of southwest-orientated balconies.
