A proposal for a tower, included in the new masterplan that will cover the Nieuw Zuid (New South) of the city of Antwerp.

An iconic building with a strong presence to hold fifteen thousand square meters of new quality housing, with a great view over the river Schelde and all the city.

The use of “bigger and cheaper” modules articulates the relation between inside and outside in a compact building.

It plays with the orientation of the views from each apartment and with aesthetics of the facade. Because it is a very monumental block, the angulated facade gives it a more dynamic feeling.
