RESIDENCE ISLAND Antwerp
Residence ‘Island’, along with the refurbished Amsterdamstraat as a green boulevard, creates a visual backbone between the river Schelde and the London bridge, making it an ideal hotspot! By offering gorgeous views and spaciousness toward the water, the MAS and the historical city centre, the project provides a classy yet private and comfortable living environment for its inhabitants & this project will be one of the last beautiful corner blocks of the southern part of new Island!
Residence ‘Island’ will be a funky and contemporary interpretation of the existing warehouse-typology. The concept arises from V-shaped columns clad in white brick, which wrap around the appartments in a subtle way as if a folded envelope. A structure which is sincere, recognizable yet remarkable. Residence ‘Island’ demands attention but is elegant, fresh and dynamic in appearance thanks to the ‘dancing’ and flowing terraces on its facade. Residence ‘Island’ is equivalent to a new identity at the Eilandje, with a wink towards the harbor and its the shipping industry and offers each inhabitant the experience of standing on the deck of a ship with beautiful lateral views on the water and the highlights of the city. The construction starts in spring 2015.
