JORDAENSKAAI in Antwerp, Belgium by Crepain Binst Architecture nv

 
February 5th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

The Jordaenskaai in Antwerp developed from the Burgt – the historic centre or first, small medieval settlement from which the city evolved. The construction site is a special location with prehistoric finds, remains of the medieval city walls and of the old Antwerp canal. The remains have been painstakingly integrated into the ensemble and are largely visible in the ample inner zone accessible to residents and visitors.

The central patio symbolizes these monuments and unifies the three volumes as a building block. The new complex, with 35 apartments, ten duplex units and 1,200 m2 of office and retail space, is characterized by varying, vertical facade concepts and sustainable use of materials. The black-veined stone forms an imposing, high double plinth along the street side, supporting the higher luxury apartments with terraces in white prefabricated concrete.

Two duplex units, one above the other, are located to the rear, oriented towards Burchtgracht and the Vleeshuis. The scale of the small homes is in keeping with the old city’s narrow street pattern. Three penthouses with large sun terraces offer a panoramic view of the city, the cathedral and the river Scheldt, while providing the building’s articulated cornice or crown.
