0144 Nieuw Zuid housing, Antwerp, BE
Over the next decade, the new city quarter Antwerp Nieuw-Zuid will be realised along the river Scheldt in the southwest of Antwerp, Belgium, as a high-quality extension of the historic city centre. The ‘bigger and cheaper’ housing project by Atelier Kempe Thill is being completed as one of the first implementations. The housing project contains 32 flexible winter garden apartments and commercial spaces on the ground floor built on a collective car park. The apartments vary in size from 40 to over 160 square metres. All have, on at least one side, an excellent outside space of more than 25 square metres that can be closed during the rainy season with movable glass partitions. The apartments are realised as low-energy passive housing for a relatively low gross building price of approximately €1,250 per square metre.
