Rozemaai-housing in Antwerp, Belgium by Atelier Kempe Thill

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

Article source: Atelier Kempe Thill



Atelier Kempe Thill has recently won the European tender for the transformation of two apartment blocks in the district Rozemaai, Antwerp. In the closed competition five teams were involved. The site, located next to the nature park “de Oude Landen”, calls for an intensification of the relationship with the environment on the one hand, on the other hand to deal with the noise from the highway and the harbour. By creating a new glazed gallery and by closing the open-air areas by using a full glass façade a noise barrier is created around the building.
